All About Charlotte

Overdress:

The CHARLOTTE overdress consists of a fitted bodice to which is attached a wide pleated open skirt, pleated in the 18th-century manner. This 18th-century costume has a very generous volume of fabric. You can match the Charlotte overdress with any skirt from the store's HELOISE collection.


The fitted linen bodice is full lined with cotton poplin. Its square neckline closes at the front with a band of eyelets on either side of the opening. A delicate lace ribbon trims the end of the preformed elbow sleeves.

Skirt:

The HELOISE petticoat is made of two panels of fabric, joined by the sides whose upper end remains open on each side. This opening allows you to easily put on the skirt.

The two panels of this historical petticoat are pleated in the style of the 18th century. On the front, the pleats start from the central box towards the sides. On the back, the folds start from the sides to converge in the middle of the back.

In the photos, the petticoat is worn over a bum pad that will bring volume to the hips and will emphasize the finesse of the waist.

Charlotte is made of prewashed medium-weight linen (205gr/m), in a range of colors matching Atelier Serraspina's color palette. You can therefore combine your Charlotte open dress with petticoats, linen or tartan shawls, as well as with sashes from the entire boutique.

Outer fabric: 100% prewashed linenLining: 100% organic cotton

Turn inside out before washing. Use cold hand wash only. Do not bleach, soak, rub, or tumble dry.

The Charlotte outfit is to be put on as follows:


The petticoat:

Put on your petticoat by the head.Once put on, the petticoat is tied in the following way: you start by tying the ties of the back panel, making a knot on the front; then you adjust the front panel like an apron, with a double turn around the waist.

The overdress:

Just slip your arms through the sleeves of the dress mantua that you'll tie at the front, passing a cord through the eyelets on either side of the opening.In the presentation photos, the dress is worn over a bum pad which adds volume to the hips and emphases the thinness of the waist.
