Clothes and the Child : A Handbook of Children's Dress in England 1500-1900 Paperback

Description

Through the centuries children's clothes have reflected the concerns of parents and the movements of fashion. The needs of the child, changing ideas on health and upbringing, evolving social attitutes and new technology, all find expression in their dress. Its development, and its changing relationship with contemporary adult dress, offer a revealing picture of the times. Though the identities of the children may not survive the clothes, each garment bears the imprint of a way of life.
