The Little Lord Fauntleroy suit was a prominent style for boy's dress attire among the privileged classes. The shirt in this ensemble is particularly noteworthy, made of fine silk with an abundance of well-made machine-made lace ruffles. The shirt has been sewn in a manner that will maintain the blouson effect regardless of the child's movements.
