Turn your child into a March sister and pass on your love of Little Women by adding these historically accurate undergarments to their ensemble.  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 these undergarments have drawstrings, extra waistband length, and growth tucks to accommodate the developing child for two to three years.  They are based off extant designs and fashion plates.

Each garment 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.  If you add two or more undergarments to your cart, 10% off each item will be automatically applied to your order!
