Historical Notes:
Metropolitan Museum of Art gown
Image courtesy The Metropolitan Museum of Art
This gown was inspired by an original c. 1847 cotton American gown in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection (shown at left). The original gown closes at the center back. However, I chose to design this dress with a front closure for ease of dressing without assistance. My replica closes at either the front or the back.

Replica gown (above) shown over chemise, corset, corded petticoat, and standard petticoat.
