Their dress are of the same material.
I am not an expert on children’s and ladies clothing of this Civil War era, but have seen enough to realize that finding an image of a mother and daughter using the same material is somewhat scarce.
Mom has either had these dresses made or she is very skilled at dress making, and cost conscious. Her dress is a bit more embellished, but then again, she will get far more use out of her dress than her daughter. Even their hair-style is very similar and the type of earrings match as well.
