Regency period fine cotton embroidered gown

c. 1810-1820
The fabric has a small floral pattern embroidered inside vertical stripes.  It has a gently rounded neckline and puffed muslin over sleeves, which have been attached to the gown after the long sleeves were completed and armholes bound. The cuffs are decorated with rows of padded cording and have a one button closure.  The skirt has a rolled padded hemline.  The gown is hand stitched, unlined and has a tie back closure.
