Researching Swedish Fashion

Childrens fashion during the early 1900’s was very much a reflection of their adult counterparts. It would seem that they were often dressed in very ornate clothing with intricate detailing with embroidery and lace. They often had collars, long sleeves and were buttoned downs.  These are three elements I want to incorporate into my work in order to give an idea of historical era however I will need to remember that since Lindgren grew up on her parents farm she would not have been wearing this intricate pieces very often.

By using examples of fashion I am able to create outfits I imagine Ingrid to have worn taking inspirations from outfits I have seen her in in photos.
