- subject matching 'Fashion Plates: Children - Tunics; pelisses'
Like a frock coat and worn by young boys too old for a dress and too young for a suit over a shirt and white or matching trousers in the 1830s-40s. Earlier tunic suits had a low bodice and short sleeves with the skirt front open from waist to hem, though long sleeves and cape could be added for outdoor wear. The open front skirt, its loose cut and its materials usually differentiated it from girls' and toddlers' dresses.
