Ships Today Historical Colonial, Victorian, Civil War Dress, Mob Cap and Apron. Made for Girl's Size 8 Ready to Ship Today!

Included are: 1. Dress as Shown 2. Mob Cap - Reversible and lined. 3. Apron - Crisp White cotton. I have also included a picture of the actual dress pattern for further details if you wish. This is McCalls Costume Pattern 5131 and is out of print! My granddaughter had a couple of these styles growing up and loved each of them. They are now handed down!

This Historical dress has princess seams in the front and back of the bodice. Front bodice center is shaped and accented with white buttons and a double white collar. Dress is made from soft 100% cotton calico for a comfortable, wearable and modest dress. Bodice is lined in the same fabric as the dress for comfort and modesty. . Dress closes in the back with buttons. This is a quality made dress. It is double seamed and top stitched for durability. It will be around a long time and can be handed down. This style was usually worn shorter with visible pantaloons underneath. I am glad to talk to you about custom pantaloons if you wish!

Oversleeves end in white trim to coordinate with the double layer of the skirt. Skirt is two completely separate layers and lots and lots of skirt! It takes 5 yards of fabric for this dress not including the white! Add a fluffy slip and you are ready for a very special event or leave it as is for just fun wear!

Made for a Girl's Size 8, however, I will give you the measurements of the dress below. Patterns vary, as do clothes off the rack, so please measure and think about how you want the dress to fit and if you want room for growing later! Standard recommendations are for the dress to be 2.5 to 3 inches larger than the actual child's measurements.

I really am a Grandmother in a small town (one stoplight) in the mountains of Virginia. After raising 5 children I spend my time sewing to keep the lights on and the cat fed and love every minute of it!
