For your little colonist. This beautifully crafted period girl's dress will certainly become one of her favorites. Coming out of the infant and toddler ages, young girls in the 18th century had gowns that were sashed at the waist with a wide ribbon or gathered by drawstrings at the back. The gowns usually were made of white linen, cotton, or small patterned printed fabrics. This girl's Cascading Floral gown and sash was hand-crafted in Colonial Williamsburg's costume sewing room using reproduction fabric. 100% cotton. Three sizes: 5/6, 7/8, and 9/10.

A young girl's gown is an adapted simple form. The gown has two growth pleats along the bottom, allowing an extra inch each as the wearer grows taller the dress can be adjusted for length. Simply clip the ends of the stitch and pull through. The back has three twill tape closures. These gowns are made deliberately wide in the waist so that the sash will close in the gown making the waist gather with more pleating.
