A Heritage Costumes Exclusive.
During the Victorian era, girls wore clothing that closely mirrored the styles adopted by their mothers. Dressed in miniature versions of women, girls’ dresses in the 19th century were long and covered almost the entire body. Sewn from linen and cotton, a typical girls’ dress during the 1800s featured modest necklines and long sleeves, with hemlines that reached the ground. Younger girls tended to wear ankle length Victorian dresses to keep the mud and dirt away during play. Though children weren’t subjected to corsets, their dresses did follow the fashion-forward adult trend of full skirts and high waists.
Your child can capture the elegant yet simple fashion of the Victorian era with this 19th century period dress. This black dress evokes the traditional style of famed suffragists like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucy Stone as well as the fashionable attire donned by Clara Barton and America’s first female doctor Elizabeth Maxwell.
