Regency gown after a portrait of Caroline Murat (Caroline Bonaparte), ca. 1810 reproduction by Angela Mombers. Materials: silk, cotton lining, metal trims.
This is an original gown from the early Regency, accented with a delicate tulle overlay and featuring slim sleeves. Back when I sewed professionally, a customer sent me this photo so I could reproduce the dress, which was a really fun project. I believe the original garment is in the Kyoto Museum collection.
Oh, I can't even recall how many Regency Era romances I've read over the years. I adore the dresses.
