A Heritage Costumes Exclusive.

During the 19th century era, girls wore clothing that closely mirrored the styles adopted by their mothers. Dressed in miniature versions of women, girls’ dresses out on America’s prairie 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 homemade dresses to keep the mud and dirt away during play. Atop their hardy dresses, prairie girls donned bonnets to protect their faces from the harsh sunlight and weather as well as aprons meant to protect their dresses while running around the new lands and expansive fields of the Midwest.

For girls who lived on the forefront of America’s newest frontier, the prairie, high-class and fanciful dress styles simply wouldn’t do during the Victorian era. Instead, as they traveled by wagon train along the Oregon Trail and headed west to new territories in the Great Plains, pioneer women and girls worked hard — and they needed clothes that could stand up to their rougher lifestyle. So, the Victorian dress styles of the 1800s were adopted in different fabrics like cotton to suit life on the prairie.

Your child can capture the colorful yet simple fashion of the pioneer era with this 19th-century prairie dress and bonnet costume set. This floral dress evokes the traditional style of pioneer women like young Willa Cather and Annie Oakley who braved the trials of the west with their families as children. Included with your long prairie dress are a bonnet and a white bib apron, which completes the look of a young girl playing in the fields of the heartland. It’s the perfect piece to don when you’re revisiting America’s westward lands during the 1800s. Young pioneer girls wore dresses like this every day, keeping protected from the bright sun as well as staying stylish.

An exclusive piece in our Heritage Costumes collection of historical clothing, this 1800s period dress is authentic to the fashion and style of 19th century America and the pioneer era. This high-quality costume dress can be used for prairie-themed school events, a history lesson, or simply a fun day of dressing up to experience life as a 19th-century girl. Made with pride and care right in the United States, this period dress reflecting the style of the 1800s is built to last.
