A Pseudo-Tudor Child’s Dress

I recently came across this pseudo-Tudor child’s dress when going through the boxes needing repackaging at Leeds. It fascinated me as it reminded me of the princess style dressing up clothes available in the Disney shop. We’ve dated this gown to the 1930s, showing that the interest in dressing up for children is certainly not a new trend. It also put me in mind of the pageant costume currently on display at the Harris Museum in Preston.
