Girl's Frock
c. 1790-1820

This pattern is for a simple Frock (a term for a girl's  dress during this period), and includes two short sleeve styles plus optional detachable lower sleeves for multi-seasonal use or sun protection. The pattern also includes the pattern and instructions for an optional waist Sash!

The design is inspired from cutting instructions published in 1808, and features typical construction of the period. The optional detachable lower sleeves are inspired by those seen in women's gowns. Basic documentation included.

This frock has a back opening, and closes with the ends of the neckline drawstring and waistline drawstring, making it quite adjustable.
View A sleeves have drawstrings at the hem, and View B sleeves have a band. The detachable lower sleeves must be used with the View B sleeve so the lower sleeves can be attached to the band. The lower sleeves are simply basted inside the sleeve band when needed and basting threads are removed when they are not needed!

Includes Girls sizes:
2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6X/7, 8, 10, and 12.
