This 1840s era girls’ dresses is cut in the style of the period. This dress and apron are part of a larger commission headed to Historic Exchange Place in Kingsport, Tennessee. During the early part of the 19th century, Exchange Place was a stagecoach stop for settlers heading west into the then wilderness of Eastern Tennessee.
This sweet little dress is quite possibly my favorite from this commission.

Introducing our NEW Romantic era design- the ANNE dress!
Embodying the transitional silhouette of the late 1830s and early 1840s, the Anne dress features characteristics of both decades. The bodice features a wide open neckline with a gathered bodice that tapers into a fitted waistband. The close fitting capped sleeves open up into full gathered puffs at the elbow and end in buttoned cuffs. The skirt is approximately 130″ wide and is hemmed to the ankle. The gown’s yoke and cap sleeves are fully lined and the dress closes in the back with either hook and eyes or buttons. Both the neckline and sleeves feature self made piped trim. This gown will be just as gorgeous in silk or wool as it is shown here in our reproduction 1830s era cotton print!

This custom made gown is our Charlotte gown made for a museum in Pennsylvania. It is shown over our corded petticoat and standard petticoat.
Our Charlotte gown is a transitional gown- meaning it has characteristics of 1830s era gowns but has features found in the 1840s as well. This gown was chosen by the museum’s program director because they needed a versatile early mid 19th century interpretive piece.
We will be finishing a corset, chemise, day cap, and chemisette in the near future to complete this gown in appropriate late 1830s era style.
