CHARLOTTE, Overdress in Sage Green Linen

Size: XS



Step back in time and immerse yourself in the elegance of the 18th century with our CHARLOTTE Overdress in Sage Green Linen. This meticulously crafted overdress is a faithful reproduction of the popular costume designs that graced the stages and streets of Western Europe and America around 1770-1785. Whether you're attending a historical reenactment, a cosplay event, or a theatrical performance, CHARLOTTE is sure to make you stand out with its authentic design and stunning craftsmanship.

Expertly handcrafted from medium weight prewashed linen in a tranquil sage green color, CHARLOTTE is both stylish and comfortable. The overdress features a flattering square neckline, metal eyelets on both sides of the front opening for a perfect fit, and pre-shaped elbow sleeves trimmed with a delicate sand-colored pleated lace ribbon. The lining of the bust and sleeves is made from soft brown cotton, adding an extra layer of comfort. The overdress is further enhanced by synthetic boning on the back and on both sides of the front opening, providing structure and shape. The pièce de résistance is the wide train, pleated in the 18th-century style, which measures a dramatic 37.5 inches (95 cm) long.

Our CHARLOTTE Overdress in Sage Green Linen is a testament to the fine art of historical costuming. It embodies the handcrafted quality, creativity, and authenticity that Atelier Serraspina stands for. To ensure the longevity of this beautiful piece, we recommend gentle hand washing and line drying. This overdress is a must-have addition to your historical wardrobe, allowing you to experience the romance and charm of the 18th century in a tangible, wearable way.
 Please, kindly note that the white petticoat shown in the photos is NOT INCLUDED.

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!)
