Victorian kids’ costumes are frequently needed for school projects, plays, fairs, festivals, tea parties, and Civil War re-enactments. From white baby Christening gowns on up to extra small women’s dresses for older girls and little suits for growing boys, the need is plentiful but the choices are limited. We looked online at everything from cheap Victorian kids costumes to beautiful reproduction dresses, girls’ Victorian nightgowns, and boys’ knicker suits to help you find the right outfit for your child. See pictures of Victorian children’s clothing from the 1850 to 1890s here for inspiration.
We also looked for sewing patterns to help you make your own clothes for rich and poor Victorian kids. Children’s boots, shoes, hats, and accessories are included as well.
