c.1820 Ballgown Bodice

Here it is!  The real thing!  I'm very proud to be the owner of a c1820 Regency Bodice.  It's made of silk gauze and lined in cream cotton.  The neck is trimmed with blue and cream cording.  The sleeves are trimmed with cording and blue silk ribbon.  The bodice closes in back with drawstrings, still present on the top but missing from the bottom.  The skirt is unfortunately (and obviously!) gone, but a few very small traces remain.


Home please!
