Gown from the Directoire

with silver embroidery

Period: around 1800 

This ensemble is crafted based upon original cuts and is a reproduction from the Directoire, the transition period from Rococo to Regency. 
The very light batiste dress is adorned with blue embroidery. The skirt's hem and sleeves are separately embroidered as well. The transparent fabric of the dress was lined with grey silk satin to achieve a slight grey tone. The dress' embroidery pattern is repeated by the manteau of blue silk, however in different arrangements at the hem and with silver metal embroidery at the front edges.
