CHARLOTTE, Overdress in Toffee Linen

Size: XS



Introducing CHARLOTTE, an 18th-century Overdress in Toffee Linen that brings history to life. Perfectly crafted for reenactments, cosplay, theatre, and all your special events, this overdress is a faithful reproduction of the most popular costume designs in Western Europe and America around 1770-1785. With CHARLOTTE, you'll not only have a piece of history in your wardrobe, but you'll also stand out in any crowd with its authentic and timeless design.

Made from medium weight prewashed linen in a rich toffee color, this overdress is designed to be both comfortable and historically accurate. The square neckline meets with metal eyelets on both sides of the front opening, ensuring a perfect fit. Pre-shaped elbow sleeves trimmed with a delicate sand-colored pleated lace ribbon add an extra touch of elegance, while the brown cotton lining on the bust and sleeves provides additional comfort. The overdress boasts synthetic boning on the back and both sides of the front opening, enhancing the silhouette and structure. The grand finale is a wide train, pleated in the 18th-century style, measuring 37.5 inches (95 cm) long, that adds a dramatic flair.

Each CHARdress in Toffee Linen is lovingly handcrafted, reflecting the creativity, authenticity, and handcrafted quality that Atelier Serraspina is known for. This overdress is not just a costume, but a piece of wearable art that tells a story of a bygone era. To care for your overdress, we recommend a gentle hand wash and line dry to maintain its color and shape. This overdress is more than just a costume, it's a statement piece that proudly declares your love for history, drama, and style. Step into the past with CHARLOTTE and create memories that will last a lifetime.

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.
