Special Order #1882W
gown is based upon an original in my personal collection. I fell
in love with this dress the moment I saw it. I felt it was indicative
of a "better gown" possibly worn by a farmer’s wife in the late 19th
century. The provenance states it came from an auction house in central
The original gown is made of tightly woven cotton- something akin to the high quality quilter's cottons available today.
At some point, the extant skirt has been modified from an 1880s style to the slimmer more close fitting 1890s era silhouette. While I took inspiration from the modified skirt, I designed my reproduction to reflect the skirting of the 1880s era.
