braiding, l c.45cm × w c.29cm × c c.40cm More details

In the 1870s children frequently wore clothing made of dark and heavy fabrics, such as this black velvet coat. The striking decoration also accords with the prevailing fashion. The back panels allow for a skirt with a bustle, a construction that puffed out a skirt at the back. They were worn by both girls and women, even though girls had shorter skirts.
