-- early homes and the settler community

-- how settlers made their living
-- how they spent their leisure time
-- the values, customs, and traditions of the early settlers
Children's Clothing of the 1800s shows readers how children dressed in the 19th century and how the early settlers were masters of recycling by passing clothes down from child to child, darning them, or using them to make other things like rag rugs. Beautiful full-color photos and illustrations show:
-- how both boys and girls dressed at different ages
-- the "breeching" of boys at 3 or 4 years of age
-- the elaborate layers of undergarments worn by young girls
-- clothes for play and fancy fashions of the day
