Early Regency 1796-1798 Floral Embroidered Cotton Gown
- Apr 08, 2018
My dream history closet includes this early Regency era cotton gown featuring the sweetest all over floral embroidery that gives it a bit of a pastoral folky look. Aren't the pansies so sweet?
Where I'd Wear It Back Then
Probably listening to Marianne practicing on the pianoforte while I worked on my needlepoint
Where I'd Wear It Now
Going on a picnic with friends along a river. I'd be barefoot and would have wild flowers stuck in my hair.
Channel The Look
This antique Regency dress is refreshingly modern. Go for a midi or maxi length dress featuring an all over floral print against a light cream or oatmeal backdrop and a soft squared neckline.
