Girl's dress, American, 1837-40. It is charming to see period dresses produced in miniature sizes for children, and the dress shown is a very high-style garment. It is a perfect example showing the collapse of the gigot sleeve in 1837 and the beginning of the V-shaped form of bodice in the 1840s. Additionally, the puffing over the bust adds another adult dimension.
