Custom Girls Romantic Era 1830's Dress
Shop on Etsy


Romantic Era Dress Set One of our favorite dresses, this cute outfit is period correct to about 1830 & represents the type of play dresses that girls wore during the Romantic Era between 1820 & 1837. It bridges the time between the minimal & high bodice Regency Era & the much fuller & more decadent Victorian Era. The fully lined bodice has empire seams in the back, along with a button closure. The shoulder drops to the back by an inch or so, as dresses did in the 1800's. The sleeves are slightly flared with small puffs at the shoulders. The 4-gore skirt is full & declared "very twirly" by our tester. The finished length is called "tea length" & girls of the time wore long batiste pantaloons underneath their dresses, as shown. The pantaloons create a very sweet combination for special occasions or for an extra layer for cooler days. You can find the Pantaloon listing in this same section of custom clothing for girls. This dress fits fairly snugly in the bodice. We recommend sizing up one size if you would like some extra room. Pattern used by permission from Sense & Sensibility. We are offering two kinds of fabrics for these dresses & have decided to give you access to our full fabric stock. You may choose from our 100% cotton quilting quality fabrics or our easy care poly/cottons. The cottons are classic looking & beautiful for dresses but they do require ironing for a perfect look. Our poly/cottons are made specifically for clothing by a Mennonite company & wash & wear beautifully. At our house we don't bother with ironing. You may choose from any of the fabrics on the following pages. When you check out please give me your fabric choice in detail. For example, C102-Bberry floral. This way I will be absolutely sure to know which fabric you desire. There are instructions at the top of each page in case you would like a sample before purchasing. For a period correct look, use a small light colored cotton print. With some browsers you can simply click on the link. With others you will need to copy & paste the link into a new tab.
