Wonderful empire waist dress reproduction in a lovely cotton floral. This Regency Era dress will be the hit at your next event . Simple yet pretty.

Regency fashion was unlike any fashion seen before for women. The style of this era depended more on the natural shape of the body and less on boned corsets and hoops. The silhouette of the Regency era was slender and the waist very high from the natural waist. This produced a rather slender effect of a woman's body. The fashion was considered quite scandelous when it first came out. The fashion range is from 1795-1820's, late 1820's.

This is the first in a series of Regency dresses I will be offering. This is a very basic style without many frills but packed with style. Very slenderizing style and will look good on most body shapes.

This is a basic empire waist dress made from a cotton floral fabric. Bodice is completely lined with a lightweight cotton fabric. Waist is just below the bustline and has small gathers at the bust where the bodice and skirt attach. The neckline is wide and falls almost to the shoulder as was the style. Sleeves are long. There is a small puff at the shoulder followed by a band and straight sleeves to the wrist. Back of the bodice buttons with mother of pearl buttons. The skirt falls from the bodice (just under the bust) and falls to the floor. Skirt is french seamed inside for neatness and there is some hand sewing at the bodice waist. There is a long satin ribbon at the waist which gives this dress a really nice romantic style.

Dress can be made from either a solid or floral cotton fabric. Give me an idea of your color preference and we can go from there. The ribbon color will match the dress color but will be your choice. I will need the following measurements to complete your dress:

Length - measurement from shoulder to hem

Lead time on this dress is 10-14 days after order date before shipping. Please provide your measurements and color choice when ordering.
