New York Arrival Gown

While this is as close to movie accurate as I could possibly make it, I approached the construction as if for an authentic 18th cen robe a l'anglaise. I'm wearing a shift, stays, bumroll, and corded petticoat underneath the dress itself. I drafted the pattern for the dress based on the 1780's en fourreau backed gown in Jean Hunnisett's book: Period Patterns for Stage and Screen 1500-1800.
