Trijntje van Leyden only lived until the age of ten. This dress, together with other items of clothing and personal possessions, was kept in her memory. The skirt is stitched up in several horizontal flat pleats, resembling the ruffles found in women’s fashions. These pleats could easily be let out as a child grew.
