Feel free to message me with any questions! Caroline Abbot is a nine and later ten year old girl who lives in Sackets Harbor, New York--a town in upper New York state on the shores of Lake Ontario, just south of the border between the United States and Canada, which was still a British colony. She was born in a log cabin and is the only child in her family. She has lived in Sackets Harbor her whole life, and loves her home town and doesn't like leaving. Her family runs a shipyard; she lives with her mother, father, and maternal grandmother.
Caroline enjoys outdoor activities, especially sailing on Lake Ontario and ice skating during the winter. Caroline likes embroidery and loves to sew. When Caroline is worried, upset, or anxious, she likes to keep her hands busy, usually with her embroidery. She also likes the cows on her cousin's farm.
Caroline is sweet and clever. Her friends call her a true hero because she's not afraid to put her courage to the test.
Caroline is adventurous, tomboyish, brave, heroic, and independent. She is prone to making rash decisions, oftentimes bordering between brave and foolish. Caroline is very stubborn, sensitive, and easily offended. She can be quite outspoken. Her father considers her to be flighty.Caroline struggles with changes and also struggles to make her own decisions. Later she learns to use her heart and mind to make decisions. Her least favorite chore is baking, which she isn't very good at. She has a way of reading the expressions of others without them saying anything or telling her how they're feeling.
She is proud of her father and will go to great lengths to please him and often boasts about him. American Girl describes her as daring and self-reliant. Caroline's meet outfit is intended to reflect the higher waisted Federal fashions in the US (often called Regency after the English era).This was one of the first eras where not only did children's fashions progress to less restrictive designs (and no longer severely reflected adult style) but also included bifurcated underwear as pantalettes as skirt hems had rose just high enough to show ankles but legs were still expected to be covered. Lightweight pink cotton empire waist calf length dress. Darker pink ruffle trim on sleeves and collar. Accenting dark pink ribbons on sleeve above ruffle and above two "growth tucks" on skirt. Embroidered attached ribbon waistband with design of varigated pink roses and green leaves and stems. Eyelet lace trim on hem.
