This is the simplified version of a period design for informal everyday attire. The bodice has a square neckline edged with lace with a "breast knot" or bow in the center front, and the elbow length sleeves are finished with a ruffle of lace. The full skirt is gathered into a natural waistline, dipping to a graceful point in front. The gown has a back-laced placket closing. Prices start at $350.00.
