These two bold and bright 1830s era gowns are part of a large commission headed to a museum in Pennsylvania. These dresses are made of 100% replica print cotton with large Gigot sleeves tapered to the wrist. The bodices are fully lined in muslin and button down the front for ease of dressing. The skirt is approximately 130″ wide and is hemmed to the ankle. The neckline and sleeves seams are piped with self made trim.
These two gowns also include a contrasting1830s era pinner apron. This gown can be worn as a work dress with the apron or with a matching belt (not shown) for dressier occasions.
This boy’s shirt, trousers, and waistcoat is suitable for mid 19th century middle class attire. It is made of plaid cotton suiting and wooden buttons. The shirt is muslin with wooden buttons as well. This boy’s ensemble is headed to a museum group in Bergen, Norway.

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.
