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.

Très belle robe , avec des finitions parfaites. Mes
mesures ont été prises en compte et elle tombe très bien .livrée dans les temps , emballage soigné.Juste un peu déçue par la couleur ( vert sauge)qui est plus terne que sur les photos. Je vais certainement poser un galon pour la « relever » un peu.

Excellent! This dress was so perfect for what I needed. I had ordered this lovely piece for a very special event and I was turning so many heads! I received so many compliments and so many people had approached me for pictures and asking where I had gotten it.
I collect antique dresses and was looking for an 'antique' aesthetic - I can, honestly, say that this dress is so sturdy and well-made. The linen used for the dress is top quality. This is definitely a worthy investment.
My only complaint with the design would be the shoulders were a little 'puffy' which was an odd look and the back had a little extra material which gave a loose look, but that's my only observation that was against my style.
I will definitely order more dresses in the future. (Maybe one in every color!)
