Make easy Regency with our half-robe!
At the turn of the 19th century, many things were changing and fashion was indicative of these things. Diaphanous white muslin dresses with very little structure became the norm. During the cold clear light of the morning, something more casual was required. Enter the Half Robe. This simple dress consisted of a simple front-closing bodice, high waist, and short skirts smooth at the front and pleated behind.
Our easy-to-use pattern, based on extant and pictorial examples, helps you make your own lady's surplice-wrapped robe and half-robe circa 1800.
