Curious Child - The Victorian Child


In the last month I've been working on a new children's line of clothing, Curious Child.  It is Victorian clothing for Victorian children.  Eventually I may expand that to other eras, but for this old year, and the soon to be New Year, I will concentrate on Victorian children.

The middle and upper class Victorian child often had a lovely childhood if they survived it.  Child mortality could be alarmingly high.  But for our purposes in Second Life, I'm focusing on the beloved and nearly mythical, middle or upper class Victorian child.  Occasionally I may have outfits for poorer children.  That's not to be snobbish, it is just a reality of what I work with.  Clothing for poor children never lasted past the ragbag.  The surviving Victorian period children's clothing is mostly middle and upper class clothing.  Sometimes one can find handmade garments from lower class homes, but that is a rarity.

Now, having said all of this, I'd like to present my first four children's outfits from Curious Child.  You will find them at the New Babbage store, which you can find in my picks.  In another day you'll be able to find them on Marketplace as well.  I hope you enjoy them, and I wish you and yours a lovely, Merry Christmas!

Cordially yours,
Kembri Tomsen
