Children?s Clothing of the 1800s

Crabtree Publishing (1995)

Most settler children owned only two outfits?one for wear every day and one for Sunday. Children?s Clothing of the 1800s shows readers how children dressed in the 19th century and how the early settlers were masters of recycling by passing clothes down from child to child, darning them, or using them to make other things like rag rugs. Beautiful full-color photos and illustrations show how boys and girls dressed at different ages, the breeching of boys at three or four years of age, the elaborate layers of undergarments worn by young girls, as well as clothes for play and fancy fashions of the day.
