Do the Empire in style!
One of the stars of the Regency period is the white muslin evening dress. Adorned with multicolour and metal embroidery on the sleeves and hems, the true beauty of the gown was the excellence of the sheer muslin fabric and its beautiful simplicity. The fineness of stitching of the seams and gathering is exquisite and shows all your skill as a seamstress.
