Mrs Papendick



and all round good egg!

Regency Style gown in a gorgeous coral coloured pure silk. The gown has full length sleeves. This is a ‘round gown’ it pulls over the head and is adjusted with drawstring at the neckline. Most Regency gowns did NOT fasten down the back with buttons, as most women did not have a maid to fasten her up!
The gown is fully lined in pale green cotton.
Bust 36” (92cm)
Empire line 32” (81cm)
Length from empire line to hem 38 1/2”( can be shortened at no extra cost) 98cm
Sleeve length 25” (63.5cm)
bicep 13” (33.5)
cuff 9” (23cm)

Not your size? We can make you a gown to your exact measurements, just drop Mrs Papendick Historical Seamstress a line .
As the items I make are based on original patterns from the 18th/ 19th century, or patterns I have drawn myself after much research ( and a theatre costume and tailoring course!) they are not like off the peg UK sizes. The measurements are the actual measurements of the garment. Please be assured I accept returns (within the same week they were posted) and a no-quibble guarantee of refund as soon as goods are received back. So buy with confidence.
