Our 1910 dress comes from a pattern by Sense and Sensibility. It was made from pictures of styles worn by girls in the early decades of the 20th century and makes a beautiful everyday or formal occasion dress. This style can be seen earlier than 1900 but with longer sleeves. By the 1930's the bodice remained almost the same but skirt length shortened and was less full to save on fabric. Gingham fabric was very popular at the time and looks great in this style but it also looks beautiful in a floral.
The short sleeves have gathers at the shoulders and the bodice is attached to a waistband which extends around the back of the dress. The full skirt attaches to the bottom of the waistband and buttons do up the back bodice. A long white grosgrain ribbon sash can be added if you'd like to use it for a special occasion. The ribbon is not attached, just tied around the waist. This dress is a little different from anything else in our collection and a nice treat for a special girl. If at all possible, please measure the waist of the child you are purchasing this dress for and include it above. If you cannot get a measurement, order based on the child's present store bought size. This dress is available in sizes 1-10. I know many of you have asked for it in larger sizes. I'm keeping my eyes open for a similar pattern that will fill this need.
Approximate finished length is as shown in the size chart below. If you have a child who does not fit into a size fairly close to her age, please use the contact form at the top of the page to drop us a note so that we can help you with sizing.
