Antique English Empire Regency Embroidered Muslin Ladies Dress High Waist 1810 For Sale
A beautiful white muslin Empire period dress embroidered all over with tiny sprigs. It has a high waist, long sleeves, and a charming,very tightly gathered high back.
This dress is of the usual rather complicated construction with ties to the waist, and the front flaps to be tied together. Thereare also the fine linen flaps at the front which are placed under the muslin flaps. These would be pinned, the muslin tied. The sleeves are quite long, as was the fashion at that time, with the cuffs overlapping onto the hands.
Unfortunately, I did not have a suitable mannequin for displaying this dress, but hope these photos give a good idea of the style.
The measurements are 30" bust, high waist 27" and overall length 49".
The condition is very good to excellent. The muslin is fresh, crisp and very pretty.
