Edwardian Children's Dresses

From the seller:

Lot of two antique Victorian, Edwardian little girl's dresses, both have faults but would be great to use as a pattern or they could be mended. One is a white cotton with top stitched polka dots, a wide filet lace hemline, lace cuffs and neckline. The dress has a large spot on one of the sleeves (photo), fabric thinning and tear by the arm seam and a few very small holes. The dress measures 22 1/2" long, 12 1/2" across the chest, 9" across the shoulder seams, 9 1/2" sleeve length. ~~~ Gorgeous little girls drop waist linen dress with a full sweeping hemline. You can see in the photo that there's a large tear on the side of the skirt below the drop waist seam. There's some small holes in the lace, some fabric thinning/wear in the linen sleeves and a couple of places with some small wear by the hemline. The dress measures 22" length, 12" across the chest, 9 1/2" across the shoulder seams, 86" hemsweep.
VINTAGE ~ ~ Victorian, Edwardian

LABEL ~ ~~ ~

FABRIC ~ ~~ cotton & linen


CONDITION ~ ~ See description above. Both dresses have faults but they would be great to use as a pattern or could be mended.

From Me:

I doubt the drop waist one was specifically a little girl's dress. Both boys and girls wore dresses until the boys were fully potty trained. They are both from the Edwardian Era- mid 1900's.
