All About Charlotte

The CHARLOTTE overdress features 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 linen or tartan skirt from the store.

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.

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 overdress is to be put on as follows: 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.

My third buy from Caroline! An excellent custom order, a late rococo-early Regency pelisse in dark blue cotton. As always also a humorous, warmhearted communication all the way. Wonderful craftmanship, dear from the seaming to the lacing on the arms, everything. Wow!
I have only one default - myself! The woman after 5 months in home-office has to lose weight! Mais, c'est la vie - elle est dûre sans confitûre! ❤️
