Embroidered Muslin Over A Pink Under Dress
Regency Fashion at its best!
In the beginning of the 19th century, whitework was the favored embellishment for the fashionable Grecian- style gowns. These Empire style gowns had low necks and high waists.
There is neo-classical design at the skirt’s front, and the sheer fabric with a solid color under dress prevents any indecent exposure of skin and gives the entire gown the look of an Egyptian princess’s dress.
