1890s Children’s Fashions – styles for boys and girls

Here are some very rare illustrations of winter 1892 fashions for “little folks”. “Child’s sack” and a little girl’s coat are illustrated, as well as petticoats (princess style), night drawers with stockings, and moccasins/slippers. This series of scans also includes a brief section on Styles for Boys and Men, which details a little boy’s suit (with attached vest), men’s undershirt, and men’s under drawers. Not much space, compared to all the dress illustrations, was devoted to men or children in this early 1890s fashion magazine issue!

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
