Button-on Skirts

Figure 1.--Patterns for making these button-on skirts were avalible in 2002. Sizes ran up to 14 years.

There were also garments for girls like button-on skirts. Button-on clohing was not exclusively for boys. While button-on shorts for boys seems to be the most common harment, there also have been button-on skirts for girls. We are less sure about when button-on clothing was first made for girls or how common it was. We do not have onformation on button-pon clothes in different countries. Nor de we know a great deal about what age lesvels it was designed form, but believe that older gierls than boys wore button-on clothes. As far as we know, these were girls' garments because by the time this style developed it was no longer common for little boys to wear dresses.
