Regency Style in a mauve faux silk with embroidered detail. The gown has full length sleeves. This is a ‘round gown’ it just pulls over the head . 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 skirt is split down the front to expose a cotton underskirt in lilac. Measurements: Bust 38” Empire line 34” Length from empire line to hem 42” Sleeve length 20” bicep 12” Wrist 10” 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.
