Here is a young girl's cotton calico print dress with a matching bonnet. The background is white with tiny pink, green and yellow flowers. The neckline is gathered all the way around. The dress itself is sleeveless and has a very large collar. There are three tiers on the skirt part of the dress with the last one having two layers of material. The opening is on the left side and it closes with hooks and eyes some of which are missing. At the center of the neck is a black velvet bow with long streamers. There are underarm stains on both sides of the dress but they cannot be seen since the collar covers the armholes. The measurements are: Armpit to armpit 30", Waist 29" and Length 30 1/2". The matching bonnet has a deep crown and a wide 4 1/2" brim tapering down to 3". The brim and the crown are lined with what looks like a silk crepe fabric. At the base of the crown is a black velvet ribbon that goes under the chin and ties in a bow. Both the dress and the bonnet look to be handmade and are probably from the 1930's or 40's.
