Regency Day dress

 

Vorderansicht mit Ärmeln
 

Period: 1810

We crafted this Empire dress from cotton that was imprinted with an original pattern from the 19th century. The cream-red or white-red color combinations were also popular during the Empire period. The cut pattern is based on an original of the time.

The top is closed with buttons that are hidden underneath the front cover. The dress owes its width primarily to a gathering at its back center. As it was common for day dresses the short sleeves can be extended with longer button-on sleeves.

In order to lift the breast higher than usual we specifically crafted a corset, also based on an original cut. A wooden busk (flat wooden strip) at the front moves the breast apart while simultaneously lifting them through gores. All eyelets of the back lacing were sewn by hand.
