First I want to thank Marie for her post on corsets. Hopefully she will be a continuing contributor to Bumble Button in the future.
Today I have four engravings from a book I found online. The off-the-shoulder dresses were in style in the 1840's for little girls. I love the ringlets and lace worn by the little boy.
