This dress is made from pure silk in one of my favourite colours! Gold braid trimmings.
1800 means trains and plenty of gathers in the fabric. To dance you need to tuck up the skirt.
I found this fabric in a store in Rome. It's a duponi made in Italy with no slubs. Feels creamy! Wonderful to work with.
This fine pure silk regency dress with cotton muslin chemistte was worn by Maria Walevska's lady-in-waiting.
