Regency gown after a portrait of Caroline Murat (Caroline Bonaparte), ca. 1810 reproduction by Angela Mombers. Materials: silk, cotton lining, metal trims.
Evening dress, c. 1810, possibly Spanish.
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.
Layers of a Regency Dress (early 1800's) by TzarinaRegina "1) the model, 2) stalkings and pantalettes (these would often just be two pant legs tied together at the top), 3) a shift, 4) the stay (this was like the corset version of a modern bra, mostly meant to lift the bust), 5) a bodiced petticoat (often with a decorative hem, just in case it showed), 6) the dress, often worn with white gloves at formal occasions."

My favorite type of regency gown—modest and delicately beautiful with a down-to-earth feel! it makes me want to take a long walk in a field with my sweetheart.
