Victorian Dress For A Little Girl

1858-childsDress.jpg

From the Lady's Home Magazine of 1858.

This is a charming costume for a miss. It is of pink silk, delicately tinted as a rose leaf. The skirt is composed of six flounces, the upper one forming a sort of basquine to the waist. These flounces are button-holed on the edges in small scallops, and embroidered in tiny rose buds. The waist is plain, and open to the bodice, disclosing a stomacher composed of puffings of white Swiss, separated by bands of rich needlework insertion. Each side of the stomacher is finished with lapelles embroidered in like manner with the flounces commencing round on the shoulder and sloping down in graceful curves to the waist. The sleeves are short, and ornamented like the flounces, with white undersleeves to match the stomacher.
