1780s American Child's dress at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia - Although small boys and girls were both put in dresses, if I had to venture a guess, I would say that this outfit was intended for a girl. The tabs around the waist are reminiscent of the flaring that appears at the foot of a caraco jacket; and the lacing down the front appears to be an attempt to create a false stomacher, a characteristic of many 18th century one-piece girl's dresses.
1780 cotton American. Very neat construction.
Printed cotton velveteen day dress, 1850s. Over the years, I have found few printed velveteens from this period. The brilliant fabric still radiates a memorable richness of color. A very old, minor alteration does not compromise the original style. Maintenance of design integrity and the rare fabric

YOUNG GIRL’S DRESS OF BLOCK-PRINTED COTTON British, ca. 1780–90, This simply styled dress with a high-waisted bodice is gently fitted with small tucks front and back that allowed for growth. The eminently practical fabric choice of a colorful, washable cotton was a sensible concession to the needs of an active young girl.
