In the early part of the century, girls' fashion
for this time period imitated older women of the same period. Girls wore dresses of knee length, with trimmings at the hem
such as lace and embroidery similar to women's lingerie dresses. Normally, black shoes or button up / lace up boots and
woolen stockings went with the dress as well as kid leather or crochet gloves. Their hair was generally worn long and curly
with decorations of ribbon. For play, bloomers and woolen jerseys were acceptable. As the decades progressed, a new attempt was made to design garments that were
more suitable for playing.
