These little uniforms are a reminder of my early childhood when nurses looked like this. This pattern has three sleeve variations, two caps in addition, the ubiquitous cape. The whole outfit is fully lined with the exception of the long sleeves and as a result, the finished look is very smooth and professional.
Gorro (child's round cap), 1730. In two-tone green brocade with gold thread and silk floral polychrome draw. Trimmed with Spanish lace. There are wo straps to hold it under the chin, in yellow silk taffeta.Lined with linen weave in color. This type of child cap fits close to the head and was used by children in the eighteenth century in early childhood. Both the fabrics and decorative motifs are the same as those used in the dresses.
