Biedermeier children dress

Period: around 1830

Little Emma – at the time 7 years old – wanted a Biedermeier dress for her birthday from her parents. With great sense of style she decided for a template from the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe (Museum for Arts and Crafts) in Hamburg, which we translated into reality with blue silk. The full and low attached mutton sleeves with close-fitting wrists were very common for this kind of dress. 

The skirt with the integrated steps can be lengthened as well as the waist size can be varied by the belt.  The collar with antique lace can be removed through snap buttons and can be washed separately.
Emma's doll got the same dress.
