SKU: PP-031-S Categories: , , ,


Period: Colonial

Description: Lewis & Clark Era, Circa 1796-1806 This front closing Empire Gown pattern was pulled, with permission, from the extant garment in the Wayne County Historical Museum in Richmond, Indiana. The gown has no history. It is a day dress. The bodice is conservatively cut yet it has the fashionable small back of the period. As a result of the small back the sleeves form the shoulders, creating a very comfortable fit. Drawstrings fasten the center front closed at the neck and waist. Illustrated instructions for sewing the garment by hand are included, however, this is an easy garment to sew by machine. A corset is worn with this garment.
