This pattern is for a full Romantic Era dress, designed from fashion plates of 1832. This style is suitable for the years 1830 - 1836. Fitting at the point of the shoulder, this dress can be worn for both day and evening wear, depending on sleeve choice. The evening sleeve is a pouf Beret sleeve, and the day sleeve is a full Gigot sleeve with hooks at the wrist. The bodice reaches to the waist and can be straight around, or with a shallow point in front. The front and back have gathered upper sections, over a fitted lining. The bodice can also be made plain, if desired. A full skirt is attached to the bodice, and is ankle length. The closure is in the center back, with hooks and eyes.
Each size is hand drawn, not scaled, with all of the bodice seams true to the era. This bodice is designed to fit snugly over a corset.
