Regency era dress in cotton floral. This empire waist dress has short sleeves and has a very slimming silhoutte.
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 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 short sleeve version of the dress. I have a long sleeve style alos. Please see seperate listing for the long sleeve dress.
This is a basic empire waist dress made from a cotton floral fabric. Bodice is completely lined with the same 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 short. There is a small puff at the shoulder followed by a band and straight sleeves to approximately the elbow. Back of the bodice buttons with buttons. The skirt falls from the bodice (just under the bust) and falls to the floor. The back is pleated at the bodice to give it a more full skirt. 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.
