This matching coat and bonnet set was made by Minimode in the early 1960s. It was worn by a girl called Karen when she was about three years old. Minimode produced good quality and stylish clothing for children from around the late 1950s. This set was bought by Karen's mother in a childrenswear shop in Harrow, England in 1961. Minimode still make good quality children's clothes today but their label is now produced exclusively for the High Street chain, Boots.
