My nine-year-old daughter has decided she wants a "Civil War" dress, and I don't know much about children's clothes from the period. After I finish my current Texas Revolution project, I will spend some time looking at threads on here, but in the meantime, I want to ask about the two girls' dress patterns that Simplicity published several years ago. I have found a lot of comments on Simplicity's women's patterns but haven't found any about the girls' patterns.
Both of them look like images I've seen except for skirts usually being longer than they are on the taller girls, but I don't know how the patterns are. Does anyone have any thoughts or opinions on the accuracy of Simplicity 4737 and 4739?
