Introducing the Anne dress c. 1838

I am excited to announce the launch of our latest design- The Anne dress!

The Anne dress is a transitional style gown that dates to the late 1830s-early 1840s and features a loose fitting bodice with yoke, an open neckline, and a full ankle length skirt. It is based on an original gown dating to this period formerly in the Tasha Tudor collection. Delicate piped trim encircles the yoke. You can wear this gown over a chemisette for a more modest neckline or during cooler weather.

The dress buttons up the back and closes at the waist with a hook and eye. Our Anne dress is shown over a chemise, corset, and 2 extra full petticoats.

This gown is made up in one of our reproduction 1840s era cotton prints but would also be lovely in silk or semi sheer lawn. It is a very versatile silhouette and is flattering on all figures. Plus, it’s super comfortable to wear!

Thank you to the absolutely stunning Miranda for modeling our Anne dress!
