Turn your child into a March sister and pass on your love of Little Women by gifting them this historically accurate, mid-Victorian child's dress.  Made of quality fabrics, this investment will last through hours of reenactments, events, and creative play.  

Historically, children's clothing was made to accommodate growth, and this design has bodice pleats/gathers, growth tucks, and extra waistband length to accommodate the developing child for two to three years.  It is based off extant designs and fashion plates.

Each dress is sustainably made from fabric remnants or reclaimed textiles and is available to ship in 7-10 business days.  To see the current available options, choose from the dropdown.  If you would like this design made in a custom size, fabric, or design, please contact us for a quote

Shipping within the U.S. is FREE for all orders over $50.

-----------------------------------------------

ALL THE DETAILS

Dresses are made in standardized sizing; use the size chart to choose the correct size for your child.

The dress includes:

  • a yoked bodice with pleats or gathers in both front and back
  • a fully lined bodice
  • a round neckline
  • a waistband with extra length (button can be moved)
  • back bodice closure of buttons
  • puffed sleeves that end in a cuff
  • a skirt that is fully gathered or knife-pleated all the way around
  • two or more growth tucks that can be let out as the child grow

Each dress is unique and some dresses come with outerwear or accessories.  Please read the listing graphics carefully and choose accordingly from the dropdown options.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

If you would like to add a chemise, drawers, and/or petticoat to your order, please find the Victorian Undergarments in the Children's Collection section and add the desired items to your cart.

Measure your child's chest, waist, and dress length according to the sizing graphic, then choose your child's size according to the sizing chart.  For the most accurate fit, please take the measurements snug to your child's body (or over any undergarments, such as a chemise, that you already own and plan to have them wear). The dress will have wearing ease in it, with at least 4" extra in the chest area and 2" extra in the waistband (which can be pulled in by moving the button or by tying on a sash).

The dress is hemmed by age according to the pictured 1868 graphic; however, if your child is shorter or taller than the measurement on the size chart, let us know in the comment box on the check out page, and we will lengthen/shorten the dress at no extra charge.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR CHILD

Please refer to the measurement graphic in the listing and the video tutorial if you need assistance in understanding and taking measurements. If you still have additional questions, please feel free to contact us.
