This charming girl's party dress was purchased in Paris by General and Mrs. John B. Woodward in 1895 and given to Elizabeth Haynes. Produced by the prestigious department store Au Bon Marché, it is an example of high end children's ready-to wear produced by the department store. Of added interest, is the observance of the fashion for full sleeves of the period for the young wearer.
