Children's Clothes

Pink Silk Satin Dress, Girl's
1884
Gift of Jean Berndt

Belonged to Clara Van Syckle (1878-1961) when she was six years old. Has provision for bustle.

Children were dressed as miniature adults. Young girls at 6 years were often put in corsets. Playing, and being comfortable, did not necessarily go together.
