Photo Number 1158

This is a photo from the first antique shop in Dorset Minnesota.

Young girl Dorset Antiques 1

A young gal with a huge bow in her hair wearing a sailor inspired blouse and skirt.  The blouse is pigeon breasted. This photo is most likely from 1905 to 1915.  Sadly it is not marked.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)


  1. Very pretty clothes. I wonder how old she was.

  2. The sailor tailored clothing was quite popular for a long time. I have seen variations from just a large scarf knotted in front, to a near replica of a real uniform.

  3. Is there any chance this is a "real" uniform and she was in the service - perhaps a nurse?

    1. Could be..but I think she looks about 15 years old:)

  4. Is it the dark color of the material that makes the pigeon-breasted detail so obvious, or is it overdone in this particular version. I don't remember it looking so obvious in those dainty feminine white outfits....
