40 Amazing Photos Show Victorian Children’s Clothing in the Mid-19th Century

The Victorian era was an interesting time for boys’ and girls’ fashion. Victorian children’s clothing for middle and upper classes were smaller versions of adult clothing with shorter hemlines and sturdier materials.


Poor children wore simplified hand me down versions of outdated rich kids’ clothing. Boys and girls wore white gowns as infants and toddlers, graduating to suits, sailor clothes, or sporty knicker outfits for boys and long or short dresses with aprons for girls. Both genders wore button-up boots. Young girls wore bonnets and boys wore caps and straw hats. Long coats and jackets kept them warm in winter.

Here, below is a set of amazing photos from smokey lace that shows what Victorian children wore from the mid-19th century.
