Romantic era/early Victorian day gown, 1835-41– here in an day style , in period correct block printed cotton, the bodice section lined with light cotton.
It needs to be worn over a period correct corset ( a corded one would be best, but a standard, generic victorian one will work as well!) and a combination of a corded and standard petticoats - either can be ordered separately on the site.

* bodice closing at the back with a hook and eyelet combination - can be adapted to size
* voluminous skirt pleated to a waistband
*separate belt with a replica buckle
* upper sleeve tabs and neckline decorated with braid
*bodice piped at the neck, waist and cuffs
Antique pelerine and hat not included!
Measurements – length of the skirt- 39" ( remember that skirts of that era are shorter, often showing the ankle!
bodice: chest closes at 39", waist at 32",
The hooks can be moved and another set of eyelets can be worked for a smaller size.
Will look best on size 12-14, here shown on a model size 12 - a bit too big
