The colonial period of American history is a fascinating one because the potential for things going wrong were so high. For the country to exist and be what it is today is an incredible achievement. The Girls Historic and Patriotic Costumes showcase outfits designed after the style of clothing that dominated during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. These outfits will be appropriate for several different events during the year.
Colonial style dresses typically feature a type of bonnet, a long and modest dress with an attached white apron, and laces to close the dress and make it secure. These outfits were intended for everyday wear and to make sure one was comfortable while working outdoors. Colonial girls were expected to help with all the household chores in order to make sure everyone had enough to eat during the off season.
These costumes would be great to wear during Thanksgiving and at reenactments of colonial life, before the establishment of the nation. Patriotic costumes are equally impressive, and feature important symbols like the Statue of Liberty. Your girl would look great dressed as Lady Liberty during a 4th of July parade.
