Pretty Dress of the Day Challenge

1825-30 Regency Gown

I found this beauty on sale on EBay recently, it was a museum de-accession piece.  Wish I could have bought it, but Pinterest is the next best thing to owning it!  Description: Lady's brightly printed muslin dress with a separate muslin fichu collar. The bodice is lined in linen, piped at the top of the shoulder seams, the armscyes, waistband, and at the curved seams of the back of the bodice. Fashionable full sleeves that taper to the wrists. The unlined skirt has a directional and box pleated waistband, and one tuck above the turned hem. A front opening with no fasteners, as made. A recent museum de-accession. Offered on EBay
