Children's Fashions 1880s-1930s
Children's Fashion trends in the late 1800s and early 1900s were often made in a unisex dress for the very young boys and girls, and as they aged, the children gained more fashionable modes distinctive to each gender.
STYLES for children are designed with an eye to simple effects and individual becomingness, and in details only are novelties introduced. There are odd collars which take lines entirely new, and different ways of putting on trimmings.
Baby-blue viyella was used to reproduce No. 7372 in this figure, and black velvet and Cluny lace provide contrast. Dress No. 7405 was developed in ecru French flannel, as here portrayed, with burnt orange taffeta bands. This stylish costume, No. 7378, was constructed of green-and-white plaid with accessories of white. Cream rep granite is shown in this smart little frock of Russian design, the number of which is 7428.
This costume reproduces No. 7425 in wine-red storm serge, with no decoration save small buttons. A Russian mode, No. 7384, is here pictured in green cheviot with almond-green shield and emblems. This smart coat pictures No.7373 in a plain make-up of tan covert and shows the popular military closing. Another coat in military style, No. 7436, is here portrayed in gray zibeline, contrast being afforded by black braid.
