Ladies Late 1840s thru 1850s Folded Fan Front Dress: Day or Tea

Item Last Updated: Thursday, 24-Nov-2016 16:02:49 MST

1840s Folded Fan Front Day or Tea Dress, 19th Century (1800s) Ladies dresses
This material
IS NOT available
    This is a different dress than the late 1840s gathered fan front dress. This is a darted bodice with strips to give the look of folded pleats, which has a cleaner look about it. It has panels / strips of material up the center of the front of the bodice / blouse. Straight sleeves for the time period, that have piping around the wrist with hook and eye closure. Piped around the neck. The back can have a buttons or hook and eyes for the closure. For those that are a little over weight, this looks more fitted than the gathered and is asked for more often. As you can tell from the pictures, the differences.

    The skirt and the bodice can be single or two tone (contrasting color) like shown in drawing. Has 125" diameter at bottom of skirt. This can not be made wider at bottom, due to design. This is of the corded petticoat time period. Those that are starting usually wear a 2-3 bone hoop, till they can afford to buy or have the time to make a corded petticoat. (See hoop and corded petticoat).

    The dress has a choice of piping at the neck (the most common for the time), although if you wish we can make it with a small collar. It looks great with the crochet necktie or crochet cotton collar. It has straight sleeves and can have caps or made without caps.

    NOTE: If using homespun cotton or drapery material we do strongly suggest a dust ruffle on the end of your skirt.


Trim:
  1. Day - Plain - no ruching / ruffles (Not Shown).
  2. Day/Tea - Sleeve and Sleeve Cap Ruching Trim Only (Not Shown).
  3. Tea - Full Bodice Ruching and Bows, as shown in picture.
Note: Ruching: material making a ruche. Ruche: a strip of pleated lace, net, muslin or other material for trimming or finishing a dress, as at the collar or sleeves.

Item Last Updated: Thursday, 24-Nov-2016 16:02:49 MST

1848 Day Dress, 19th Century (1800s) Ladies
      This dress was a custom made for a customer last year. Straight sleeves with piping and hook and eye closure, This dress has sleeve caps as shown. Gathered in front bottom of bodice, that flare upward.  Lined and boned, with contrasting piping.

     The skirt can be gathered or pleated.

     Collar can be a crochet like the picture for an addition price or a straight band collar, piping or small Peter pan collar.

     Do not suggest this for large or extra large sizes, since it's pretty full in the front bodice part already.

     Note; This is the corded petticoat era, although some seem to start with the 4 bone hoop, before adding the expensive of a corded petticoat. Need to decide how you want to proceed in this area. So need to know the diameter, to fit it to what you wear underneath.

Ladies 1848 into the 1850s Gathered Fan Front Dress: Evening / Wedding

Item Last Updated: Thursday, 24-Nov-2016 16:02:49 MST

1848 Day, Evening or Wedding Fan Front Dress, 19th Century (1800s) Ladies
    This is a custom made dress for a museum. Needs to be made of very light material, and calls for a lot of material, as you can tell. Also a dress designed not for a large woman.

    The bodice/ top is very full with a gathered full curved bottom. Light lace trim around neck. There are 2 rows of satin ribbon on the edge of all the ruffles. Unseen in the picture, the dress seems to have detachable sleeves which are shown in the below pictures to take on and off when desired.

    The skirt is with 4 flounces sewn over a (under) skirt under the ruffles.

    This dress needs to be called on, for material availability. Could look very pretty in a Swiss miss with contrasting ribbon. Could also be made with no ribbon edge or replaced with lace edge. Also could be 3 flounces instead of four.

    NOTE;  This is the corded petticoat era, although some seem to start with the 4 bone hoop, before adding the expensive of a corded petticoat. Need to decide how you want to proceed in this area.
