1840s afternoon gown

This 1840s era afternoon gown is our Brooks dress and is headed to a museum group in Bergen, Norway. This gown is made of 100% cotton.

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.

We modified our design so that children of many sizes can simply step into the dress with ease. The garments are also completely machine sewn with reinforced seams to provide years of use.

We made simple pull over aprons (based upon an original 1830s era garment) for each dress.
