Regency! Rosaline’s favourite gown
Dress 1810s | IMATEX
Sprigged cotton dress, 1810s (by Charleston Museum)
Brocade dress, c.1820 (by Charleston Museum)
Cotton print bib front dress, c.1810 I love the naive simplicity of early 19th century styles. Made from white cotton rib weave that is roller printed with tiny “daisies”. The endearing dress is styled with a drop-front bodice, known as bib front or apron front. The bib attaches to the dress with pins on the sides. Under the bib front is an ivory cotton underbodice for modesty. The back bodice and upper sleeves are lined with ivory cotton. The bodice back has an attached sash that ties in front. Everything is completely hand stitched. (via Regency Clothing at Vintage Textile: #7377 Regency cotton dress)
The Philadelphia Museum of Art
Embossed silk dress, c. 1803. The neckline and high waistline are fastened in back with drawstrings. The bottom of the dress features piping and delicate silk rosettes. It may have been worn as a wedding dress by Susannah Richardson (1789-1824) who married John Boyd and was again worn by her daughter, Margaret Ann Boyd Johnson who married her second husband, David St. Pierre DuBose in 1831.
From the collections of the Charleston Museum, Charleston, South Carolina.
