CHARLOTTE, an 18th-Century Overdress in Steel Blue Linen

The Atelier Serraspina catalog presents two types of 18th-century dresses, all inspired by models worn in the years 1760-1780. Next to the 18th-century English gown LOUISE, we find CHARLOTTE, an overdress, very Italian inspired, but which was also worn at the French court since the ladies of Marie-Antoinette loved this model!

As usual, at Atelier Serraspina, we do not sew court dresses. We are more interested in everyday clothes worn by ordinary people, in the city or the country.

The 18th-century CHARLOTTE  overdress consists of a tight-fitting, fully lined cotton bodice, closed in the front by a series of eyelets on either side of the front opening. The back seams converge towards the kidneys to refine the waist. The preformed sleeves end with a pretty lace ribbon. A discreet luxury for this simple dress!

The CHARLOTTE's train is pleated in the 18th-century style: pleats start from the sides and converge towards the middle back.

This CHARLOTTE dress is made out of steel blue linen with a medium weight (205 gr/m2).

Atelier Serraspina - 18th Century Fashion - Caroline Koriche
Born in France, I settled in the early '90s in a small village in the Catalan Pyrenees. There, I learned to sew, and made sewing a passion. Little by little, I trained in this field, combining my work with another lifelong passion: history!
