A Girl's Clothing at 1900

A girl's clothing was simpler and less tight fitting than her mother's. Once she reached her early teens she began to dress in a more adult fashion. Around the age of twelve the hem of her dress would begin to be lower so that by the age of 16 it might be at her ankle and then a few years later her hem would reach to the floor.
