My 1790s Chemise Gown and Blue Silk Open Robe

Or, the biggest pain in the rear ever. ever. Who knew it would take so many tries to figure out the draping of the open robe?! That being said, this is one of my favorite gowns, and the flow-y train (which I pinned up for the dance) and the thin chemise gown are just lovely to wear. I'm wearing over it my regency short stays (pics to come) and my regency petticoat. I debated on selling it, but i don't know if I can bear to part with it now! I'll definately be wearing it again, possibly for my senior pictures. :D


  1. It turned out lovely! Yes, open robes can be quite the hassle to drape/ draft.

  2. yay open robe! I love the Jane Arnold pattern, and you've done such a fantastic job with it. I need to re-make one for myself, since the last one I made is covered in feathers, blah.

  3. thanks, yall!
    hey, i thought the feather-y gown was cool. i just don't think i'd ever have the guts to do anything like that!
