Round gown

This late 18th century gown is inspired by the styles worn in the 1790s. The dress design and colors all harken back to the portraits of Vigee LeBrunand her connection with femininity.


This dress is based upon our Mariedress and was designed for stage and a client who has ordered multiple garments in the past. The dress body is cotton and the peach accents are vintage grosgrain taffeta.

About Susan

Hi! My name is Susan and I am a historian, seamstress, teacher, mother, and wife. My passion for history has manifested itself in the art of recreating clothing from different periods of time. Growing up in the American South, I am heavily schooled in the art of recreating clothing from the 19th century. After nearly a decade of immersing myself primarily in the Victorian period, I found the need to branch out and explore other periods of time. However, it is my connection with the American South and the clothing of rural America that continues to be the driving force behind my designs.
