Clothes for Children

Little girls wore a dress, apron, and a bonnet. For nighttime they would wear a nightgown and a cap. Girls did wear petticoats. They also wore smocks. Sometimes when it was cool they would wear shawls. Boys wore pants and long shirts made out of deerskin. Again, during the winter time they would wear a hat made out of raccoon they had caught. During the summer they would wear straw hats.
