Fashion Date:Circa 1893-1897

***Both of the above photos are of the same little girl.

Costume Description:This dress has a yoke like child #11. It is gathered at a "high waist" to complete the empire look that is especially popular for little girls in this era. The main dress fabric is a small check and is accented with a solid color on the yoke. Wide lace garnishes the yoke. The sleeves are very full and fashionable for this time period.

Hairstyle Description: Her hair length is to the bottom of the shoulder blades. She has bangs that oddly come to a small point in the center of her forehead. Judging by the waving of her hair from the earlobes down, her hair had previously been braided.
