Description: A handmade baby slip made of off white fine cotton muslin. The slip is sleeveless with a round neck line. The slip fastens at the proper right shoulder with two button hole loops and two .8cm pearl buttons. The arm holes and neck edge are bound with bias fabric. There are two darts at the front and back sewn by hand over the neck edge. The front neckline has a row of gathering stitched. A 9.5 cm gathered flounce is attached to the body of the slip with a 1.5 cm decorative cut work lace in a ladder pattern. The side seams are enclosed in French seams and the hem on the flounce is machine sewn approximately .3cm wide. History: This item was donated by the Herridge family, long time residents of Mississauga and owners of Herridge Market on Southdown Road in Clarkson. Lloyd Coulson Herridge (1912-1988) and his wife Viola née Ehrhardt (1912-2004) had six children; Lois, Ross, Don, Bruce, Jim and Jane (Jane donated these items on behalf of her family). All members of the family worked at the market and it still continues to be a family run business with Don Herridge and his family now managing the market. Lloyd Herridge and all of his children attended Clarkson School on Clarkson Road South. This item was used by Jane Thompson née Herridge (1944- ) who now resides in Las Vegas and is the only sibling not living in the Region of Peel.
