FROCK FOR A YOUNG GIRL OF EIGHT

“We give here a diagram, from which to cut a frock for a little girl, say about eight years old. It is an undress frock for in-doors, composed of an ample skirt laid in large hollow plaits and reaching a little below the knees; it is sewed on to the piece forming the top of the garment.”


As on the original at the right.

This little frock/dress, when made to the measurements stated in the Peterson's Magazine, is VERY full, thus I have adjusted my pattern for this frock/dress that isn't as full, giving you a choice. I have also added a tie belt that would have been popular for the mid 1800's.

Frock #1: Made Very Full, exactly as stated in Peterson's Magazine, with pleated skirt + Belt $145.00

Frock #2: Made Very Full, exactly as stated in Peterson's Magazine, with gathered skirt + Belt $125.00

Frock #3: Made not quite as full, with pleated skirt + Belt - $105.00

Frock #4: Made not quite as full, with gathered skirt + Belt - $90.00

All - Adding $15.00 if wanting longer length than calf of leg.

All - Adding $18.00 if wanting a matching bonnet.

Shipping - $12.80
