1790s Open Pelisse and Regency Dress by Thimbles and Acorns

Around the turn of the century, Romantic and Grecian dress styles that were lighter and simpler than those of past periods became fashionable. Hair styles gentled,stays and petticoats were minimalized, and gowns in plain, subdued colors featured a high waistline just below the bust.

This Pattern features a 1790 style Pelisse with a front belt closure that sits just below the breast, a sailor collar, and a double box pleat in the back. The 3/4 inch sleeves have tucks at the inside elbow, lending a graceful curve to the sleeve. As a bonus, a pattern for a Regency dress, specifically designed to compliment the Pelisse, is included.

Materials:

  • Dress: 1/2 yard semi-sheer fabric such as organdy, silk, or muslin. 1/2 yard lightweight fabric such as cotton lawn, silk, linen or batiste. Not suitable for knits. Dress Lining: 1/6 yard lightweight fabric such as cotton batiste or muslin (scrap pieces or fat quarter work well). Lining may be white or another color that compliments the dress fabric. Not suitable for knits. Pelisse: 1/3 yard lightweight fabric such as lawn, silk, linen or batiste. Not suitable for knits. Pelisse Lining: 1/6 yard lightweight fabric such as cotton batiste or muslin (scrap pieces or fat quarter work well). Lining may be white or another color that compliments the dress fabric. Not suitable for knits.
  • Closures: For Dress, 3 size 4/0 snaps. Instead of snaps, 2 inches of 1/2 inch wide velcro or 1/4 inch buttons may be used instead. For Pelisse, 2 1/4 inch buttons.
