Haute Couture Victorian fashion dress gown from American 1810. #Historical #Costume made from silk. The use of ruffles gather in sleeve and waist bodice with pleat fold at the skirt hem gaves this Empire dress an unusual surprisingly modern minimalistic sensibility.

Cotton and silk dress with embroidered scalloped hem, American, ca. 1810. This historical dress served as an inspiration for a 1950's muslin designed by Charles James for Mrs. William Randolph Hearst, Jr. She was a life-long muse and friend of James, and often brought him historical fashions to reinterpret. The results were imaginative and unique although it is unclear if the final results were ever worn.
