Romantic children's dress

 
 

Period: around 1830

Little Emma – at the time 7 years old – wanted a Biedermeier dress for her birthday from her parents. With great sense of style she decided for a template from the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe (Museum for Arts and Crafts) in Hamburg, which we translated into reality with blue silk. The full and low attached mutton sleeves with close-fitting wrists were very common for this kind of dress.


In order to make the dress adjustable to size, so that Emma can enjoy it for a long time, we actually cheated a little bit: the cuffs are furnished with elastic band, which was not even invented back then. Due to three inwrought levels the skirt can also be extended by 12cm (4.7"), while the belt can be used to adjust the waist measurement. The collar with antique lace can be removed through snap buttons and can be washed separately.

We also do not want to withhold Emma's supplemental order: A matching dress for her doll.
