Image courtesy The Metropolitan Museum of Art
gown was inspired by an original c. 1847 cotton American gown in
Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection (shown at left). The original
gown closes at the center back. However, I chose to design this dress
with a front closure for ease of dressing without assistance. My
replica closes at either the front or the back.
Replica gown (above) shown over chemise, corset, corded petticoat, and standard petticoat.
