Child’s Dress

1860s

Cotton, trimmed with wool braid

Cotton was practical as it could be washed, assuming that the braid did not shrink or bleed.

The skirt of this dress has a series of triangular pattern motifs worked after the hem had been stitched, one of which has been inverted to form the centre front panel of the bodice.
