Bright Yellow Young Child's Dress

From the seller:

We are selling a large collection of antique clothing that came from a remarkable auction several years ago. All had been accumulated in a trunk by an early Connecticut family. We are selling the items that did not have good identification or that had some minor condition issues. Please check our other auctions to see all 60 items eventually listed.
And please assume that all garments are too small to fit you. We do not care to facilitate destruction of these artifacts by providing detailed measurements to those looking simply for costumes to wear.

From Me:

I really wish they'd give the measurements - it's not because we want to wear the outfits, it's to disprove the myth that the Victorians were really "smaller" than we are today. I wanted to include this one due to it's vivid coloring.
