This is the beautiful, Lizzie cotton day gown. It is very typical of Regency costume as worn by the heroines of Jane Austen.

The dress features a traditional deep scoop neck with a drawstring neckline and button fastening at the centre back with an additional drawstring ribbon to pull the empire waistline in snuggly under the bust. The sleeves are delicately puffed at the shoulder with drawstring ties around the cuff. The skirt of the dress is lightly gathered under the bust with tighter gathers at the centre back giving the beautiful column shape of the early Regency era.

The gown is made from a beautiful, 100% cotton fabric printed in a delicate white, trailing vine pattern. The cotton is available in an assortment elegant colours to suit all tastes. The gown is unlined as is traditional of the time and it is recommended that you wear a chemise and stays under or a good supportive bra and slip. The gown is mostly machine sewn, but the hem, sleeve cuffs and neckline are finished by hand.

Not everyone fits standard sizing so I make everything to the measurements you provide. This means lengths are just so and widths are just right. For some items like skirts I will only need a few basic measurements, but complicated items like gowns will require you to fill out a measurement chart. Once you have placed your order,  I will send my measurement chart and instructions PDF in a message. Please see my shop policies for more FAQs about my service.
