CHARLOTTE, an 18th-Century Overdress in Sage Green Linen

When it came to choosing a range of greens from my 18th-century fashion collection, the choice was not easy! There were two requirements: I needed at least two shades of green that would work together, but they should also combine with the tartans in the store.
I already had in mind the dark green that I used in all my collections. I chose this sage green because it represents perfectly the peasant spirit of my 18th-century dresses. Simple clothes, often worn and passed from generation to generation. This grayish-green fits perfectly with this idea.

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.”
