Edwardian Era Children's Clothing - March 1905 The Delineator

Edwardian Era Children's Clothing - March 1905 The Delineator 8268 - Misses' Shirred or Tucked Costume - A design of unusual attractiveness is pictured in cream-white nun's-veiling and in dotted Swiss, each combined with lace. The yoke, in square outline is designed for high neck with standing collar, or to be cut out in Dutch or lower square style. The full blouse is shirred or tucked at the top, where it meets the yoke, and provision is made for a bloused or eased effect at the back, where the closing is invisibly effected. A close lining is used. Full-length sleeves with deep cuffs or elbow sleeves with band finish may be employed, two-seam linings affording support. The use of the trimming ruffles is a matter of taste. Shirrings or tucks confine the fulness at the top of the five-gored skirt, which measures about three yards and one-fourth at the lower edge in the middle sizes. A belt crushed about the waist is a stylish accessory. Checked brown voile will make up charmingly in this way, with a yoke and cuffs of tucked silk batiste in a soft shade of green. Drap d'ete, cashmere, albatross, chiffon cloth, mull, mousseline, pineapple gauze, point d'esprit, lawn, organdy, etc., are advised. The trimming ruffles will be pretty in all thin fabrics, but lace hiffon, or washable net might be substituted. 8213 - Girls' Box-Plaited Dress - The opportunity given for variation of this mode renders it exceptionally attractive. Three box-plaits at the back and front are stitched to a convenient depth and creased to the lower edge, the body and skirt being in one. A shield may be applied when the dress is made high in the neck, provision also being made for an open neck, and the closing is arranged under the centre plait in front. A standing collar and a neck-band for supporting a linen collar are included, and a fancy collar and oddly shaped bretelles are optional details. A belt breaks the straight lines from neck to lower edge. A box-plait between side-plaits with stitching along the edges ornaments the tops of the sleeves, which are gathered into wristbands, bearing double or single cuffs. Blue linen with accessories of white, and white pique with embroidery are represented. Gingham, duck, marseilles, galatea, madras, cotton cheviot, chambray, serge, henrietta and wool cheviot are appropriate. Scotch tartan will make up very prettily from this design, and may have bretelles or fancy collar, shield, cuffs and belt of plain red, blue or green material. 8262 - Misses' Tucked Shirt-Waist Costume - A smart costume of the shirt-waist type is pictured here in deep-red linen with white collar, cuffs and belt, and in ring-dotted gauze with an ecru ground. The skirt, which comprises five-gores, is gathered at the sides and back, and has pairs of tucks at the side seams stitched to yoke or flounce depth. The fulness at the back is laid in an inverted box-plait, and this too is stitched in tuck style for some distance. The entire lower edge in the middle sizes measures about three yards and three-fourths. The "Buster Brown" effect is achieved by wearing the waist outside the skirt, and it may be bloused or eased at the back, as preferred. Narrow and wide tucks are pleasingly employed for decoration. Closing is effected at the left side of the front under a wide tuck. A narrow neck-band and standing collar complete the mode. Deep or band cuffs may finish the sleeves, which are of the latest shaping. A narrow belt is worn with the blouse, whether in regulation or "Buster Brown" style. Tobacco-brown serge will prove a satisfactory selection for everyday wear, and will be pretty with Persian banding on the collar and cuffs. Lady's-cloth, cheviot, cashmere, novelty goods, cotton hopsacking, madras, etc., will reproduce the mode satisfactorily.
