Antique Velvet Sailor Suit - toddler/preschool child's size

SKU: 00769-009

For your Little Lord Fauntleroy, a cotton velvet sailor suit from the early 20th century.

  • Consists of a long sleeve, snap-front, sailor-style top that securely buttons at the waist to matching shorts, keeping the look effortlessly neat and tidy.
  • Soft cotton velvet in rich brown is unlined, with smooth interior.
  • Shorts close with the buttons at the waist, sides overlapping.
  • Lovingly made with hand-sewn buttonholes.
  • Sailor suits of this type were popular from the mid-Victorian era through the 1940s. This one is no older than Edwardian, but the exact age is unknown.
  • Perfect for holidays, special occasions, or keepsake photos.

Labels: none - probably home sewn

Fiber/Care: no tags, cotton velvet / dry-clean

Condition: Presents beautifully. Strong and wearable by your modern toddler or pre-schooler. Close inspection reveals color shift at the upper back and some wear and tear to the collar's trim. Note that the intentional zig-zag cut edge of the top, which does not show when the suit is worn, is typical of these sets and does not mean the suit is unfinished.

*We've had this antique velvet shorts suit professionally dry-cleaned and it's ready to wear.*
