Day 38: Victorian Girl in Gretchen Style Dress

Day 38:  Victorian Girl in Gretchen Style Dress
This dress is called a Gretchen-Style Dress. I found some drawings of it in a book I have on antique children's fashions and it inspired me to make my own version for this little girl. I made her high button boots out of real white leather. She had the prettiest brown eyes and lushest blonde hair.

It looks very 1890's with the brettelles and puffy sleeves. One of my very favorite periods for costuming. She is lovely, Victoria.

I'd have to look it up in my costuming book again, but I seem to remember this style as being popular in that decade. When I do, I'll let you know. The fabrics I chose are completely incorrect in style and color for this period, but I thought it was a pretty combination anyway. She's such a girly girl!
