Regency Dress

I'm loving this dress!

Actually, I don't know anything about the painting - artist, date, subject. I love that V front and the fullness of the skirt! I'd love to make my white silk dress like this, but I don't think the V bodice would look that great with the Pelisse, so I'm sticking to another design.

  1. That is really fantastic! If you ever do find anything about the painting, I would love to know more. It really shows the move from the early chemise a la reine to the full on regency gowns!

  2. This dress is indeed beautiful! Thanks for sharing this painting - I've never seen it before.

    I have to say that to me, this young woman shares a resemblance with Carey Mulligan. She played Kitty Bennett in the 2005 P&P movie.

    Here's a picture of her :
