Breeching
from wikipedia

Breeching was the occasion when a small boy was first dressed in breeches or trousers. From the mid-16th century until the late 19th or early 20th century, young boys in the Western world were unbreeched and wore gowns or dresses until an age that varied between two or three and seven or eight. It was an important rite of passage in the life of a boy, looked forward to with much excitement. It often marked the point at which the father became more involved with the raising of a boy.

Ideas in children's clothes
...

Like all well-designed garments, children's clothing should be attractive and planned with the needs and activities of children in mind.

Children's clothing should be easy to put on and take off, so the child is encouraged to dress without help.

Elasticized pull-on pants and skirts can be managed easily by young children.

Large buttons and zippers with pull tabs require less manual dexterity than small buttons and zippers without pull tabs.

Velcro and gripper snaps can be handled successfully by most children.

functional details

Smocking, lace, braid, ruffles, tucks used as decorative trim





Growth Features


Growth features can be added to children's clothing to extend the length of time the garment can be worn. Decorative tucks near the hemline can be let out as the child gets taller. Tucks that do not show can be put on the inside of the skirt in the hem area. Hems that are 3 to 6 in. (7.6 to 15.2 cm) deep are often used, especialy in thin fabric, so the garment can be let down. Elastic in the waistband of dresses, skirts, or pants, and in the hem of sleeves, will expand with the child. Attaching two sets of buttons, grippers, or Velcro fasteners to shoulder straps or belts also allows for growth.

boy's linen skirt suit, 1870s


This boy's suit is fashioned from brown lightweight linen and is decorated with bands of dark olive braid trim.




The double breasted jacket has half-moon shaped pockets and mother-of-pearl buttons.




The pleated skirt slips over the head with no closure. The waist size can be adjusted with the ribbon tie belt. The seams of the suit are sewn by machine; everything else, including the pocket application and button holes, is sewn by hand.




Quote:

This delightful boy's suit is a fascinating remnant of our cultural history. Even as late as 1870, it was considered proper for an upper middle class boy to be dressed in a skirt. But as America approached the 20th century, this was seen less and less. As a newly muscular emerging world power, the United States perhaps felt less comfortable with a feminine image for boys.
