The clothing for children during the Victorian times corresponded exactly with the fashion world that was available for adults, and this was right done to the tiny details. Up until the start of the eighteenth century the children had to wear exactly that.
The children in the Victorian period wore crinoline petticoats with long skirts, loose fitting dresses, skirts and blouses for girls and breeches and trousers for boys. The biggest difference between then and the present are the layers of clothes worn. Sailor suits were very popular for both boys and girls.
During the Victorian times, girls were squeezed into corsets during the 1860s. Boys wore frocks with pleated skirts or tunics and blouses over pleated skirts, a waistcoat and jacket of velvet with a kilt of tartan poplin, plus scarf, brooch, sporran and Glengarry cap.
Voctorian children wore rags and clothes that had been thrown away by rich people. Boys wore dresses up until they were five and girls wore corsets during the 1860s
