This outfit is believed to be the dress of George H. Sumner (1870-1946) of Roxbury, Vermont, who later moved to Deerfield. The dress is made of a purple-blue wool twill, with wide matching velvet collar and off-white satin ribbon. The low, loose waistline would help provide a measure of comfort to Sumner as a young child.
