Charlotte, an 18th-century Open Gown

This historic 18th-century overdress faithfully reproduces one of the most popular costume designs in Western Europe and America around 1770-1785.

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.
Please note that the white petticoat shown in the photos is NOT INCLUDED

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.

Fabric & Care

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 linen
  • Lining: 100% organic cotton

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

How to dress

The Charlotte open dress 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.

Before starting, make sure you know how to get your body measurements. If in doubt, don't hesitate to contact me directly or add a note when placing your order.
