How to order #003: 1830-1836 Full High Gown

#003 1830s Full High Gown $18.00 (US funds)

The 1830's Full High Gown is copied from an original in The Hermitage Clothing Collection. The Hermitage, located in Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Hermitage gown is dated to the 1830's by its rectangular skirt panels and dropped shoulders with gigot sleeves. In 1836 the gigot sleeves became unfashionable and were replaced with a sleeve that had fullness below the elbow. Before 1836, fashion plates illustrated the hem at ankle length, but after 1836 the hem descended to the instep.

The gown closes in the back with four hooks and eyes; one at the neck and three on the waistband.

It is available in Multi-sizes 8-26.

Sizes 8-20 requires 7 3/8 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric; sizes 22-26 requires 10 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric.
