Childs dress in blueprinted cotton. Dated to around the year 1800. Nordiska Museet, Stockholm, Sweden. NMA.0044128
1780s American Child's dress at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia - Although small boys and girls were both put in dresses, if I had to venture a guess, I would say that this outfit was intended for a girl. The tabs around the waist are reminiscent of the flaring that appears at the foot of a caraco jacket; and the lacing down the front appears to be an attempt to create a false stomacher, a characteristic of many 18th century one-piece girl's dresses.
Little Girls' Tan Wool Coat With Black Cotton Trim and Black Leather Belt, Worn With Matching Tan Wool Bonnet With Black Trim, American, 1895-1899
Child's red wool dress with soutache braid trim, American, ca. 1865. This dress, worn by a boy or girl, is made complete with charming and stylish detailing. The sleeves are of a fashionable shape and the bodice is carefully pleated instead of simply being gathered. The alternating pleats in the skirt show the sophisticated level of construction. Finishing the piece, the soutache braid has been stylishly applied, which was also used in adult clothing in the 1860s.
