Meet Outfit[]


Caroline with Meet Caroline.

Caroline's meet outfit is intended to reflect the higher waisted Federal fashions in the US (often called Regency after the English era). This was one of the first eras where not only did children's fashions progress to less restrictive designs (and no longer severely reflected adult style) but also included bifurcated underwear as pantalettes as skirt hems had rose just high enough to show ankles but legs were still expected to be covered.


Lightweight pink cotton empire waist calf length dress. Darker pink ruffle trim on sleeves and collar. Accenting dark pink ribbons on sleeve above ruffle and above two "growth tucks" on skirt. Embroidered attached ribbon waistband with design of varigated pink roses and green leaves and stems. Velcros up the back.


Lower calf-length white pantalettes. Eyelet lace trim on hem. Elastic waist.


White knee-length knit socks.


Pink ballet style flats. Black soles without heel.
