The dress options in this pattern were inspired by the beautiful portraits of the 1780s and by extant garments in the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Museum of London. This pattern includes options for a smooth-bodice dress that fastens up the back and a gathered bodice dress that slips over the head. It also offers elbow-length sleeves with optional ruffles and fitted long sleeves. Appendices give directions for using sheer fabrics, making tucks, and more. Illustrated instructions make construction easy! A wide sash or ribbon around the waist gives these dresses a darling Kate Greenaway look (sash instructions included). The pattern is rated intermediate because of the lining and understitching, but it is really not difficult to put together.
