You undoubtedly know the 18th-century dresses from the Louise Collection, which my clients love so much! Louise has the advantage of being a simple one-piece dress. But my 18th-century fashion collection also includes the Charlotte version.

Charlotte is an open dress designed on the same pattern as Louise for the bodice and sleeves. But the main asset of Charlotte is to be open. So you can wear it over an 18th-century petticoat of any color and get a pretty different look every time. Here I'm wearing the dark green version of Charlotte over a simple white linen underpetticoat.

The 18th-century CHARLOTTE overdress consists of a tight-fitting, fully lined cotton bustier, 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!

“There is nothing new except what has been forgotten- This quote was
said by Rose Bertin when Marie Antoinette approved a dress Mademoiselle
Bertin had refashioned for her.”
