Black silk Spencer jacket (American), circa 1818. Metropolitan Museum of Art

Dress 1818 The Metropolitan Museum of Art - I would love to see how that top is made...

Dress 1818, American, Made of cotton (Gothic Regency)~~~~~ By 1811 in Britain, influence of the Middle Ages, termed Gothic crept into dress styles debasing the pure classical lines. The bodice gained more shaping and could be panelled. It was not cut as tight and narrow as in the first decade of the century, so it made the shoulder line broader and the dress more comfortable to wear.
