The Camille Dress

$265.00$295.00

The Camille Dress is inspired by Jean-Baptiste Isabey’s Portrait of a Young Lady in a White Dress (c. 1855). This classic gown first made its appearance in the 1790s and continued to be stylish throughout the late 1850s.

The gown’s rounded neckline is secured by a cotton cord making it somewhat adjustable. The short, puffed sleeves vary in width depending on time period (extra full in the 1830s). The fitted waistband sits just above the natural waistline and is attached to the full, gathered skirt.The width of the skirt increases per decade as well. Please drop us an email with the decade you wish to interpret. Hemmed to the lower ankle. Shown over a shift (not included but recommended.)

Pricing DOES NOT INCLUDE fabric. You need to purchase 6 YARDS of our reproduction cotton fabric to complete your order.
