antique childs chair with doll and magnolia
1840s children's fashions "Most sixteen year old wore gowns to the ankles, a fourteen year old skirts to the calves, but a 12 year old wore skirts to just below the knee. Not even the youngest child escaped the wearing of a crinoline supported skirt. By the 1840s those skirts were true crinoline style. They were pushed out with stiff starched petticoats and horsehair crin fabric petticoats in layers"
