    Description
     
    Ladies' Round or Trained Gown with a High Stomacher Front c.1800-1810 Also known as a Bib or Apron Front.
    This gown opens on both sides of the front, with the entire front bodice and part of the front
    of the skirt falling down and open. The inside of the bodice ties together
    with strings and the falling bodice is pinned into place at the top of the
    front bodice on the shoulder straps. The bodice and front of the falling
    skirt are kept in place with ties that tie in the back, keeping the front
    secure. The front bodice fits just under the bust and the back of the bodice
    is shorter than the front. The back of the bodice is very small and the
    armholes extend from the arms onto the back. The long sleeves are very
    long; so much so they sometimes bunch up on the arm and end at the
    knuckles of the hand. The front of the skirt is flat with sorne pleats at
    the side to hide the fall front. The back of the skirt is very full with
    many pleats. The inside of the bodice is lined with unbleached muslin.
    This gown has several sleeve options: The long sleeve in View Amay
    also be cut short or 3/4Iength. The puffed sleeve in View Band C also
    has two lengths: one very short for evening as in View C, or the other
    slightly longer option which can be worn with an extension to make it a
    long sleeve as in View B. There is an option to add two small frills to
    the bottom of the long sleeves if desired. There are three options for the
    bodice front, which has a drawstring at the top to adjust for fitting.
    There is a darted bodice, a gathered bodice, and a very full gathered bodice.
    The darted bodice can be drawn down at center front with a ribbon
    instead of using the drawstring. The skirt can be hemmed evenly all
    around for a round gown, and there are three options for a train: short,
    medium, and a long train which at the longest adds 22 inches to the back
    of the skirt. This type of gown was worn for day or evening; the difference
    being the sleeve length, type of fabric, and the elaborateness of the
    decoration. More information is in the pattern.
    Fabric: Sheer or opaque, cotton, silk or wool. Printed or figured,
    striped or plain, embroidered, net, tulle, spangled, border or all over motifs.
    Lining: unbleached muslin. Notions: 2 yards cotton or linen 3/8"
    tape, 2 straight pins or - Optional: 2 Dorset buttons.

    Women's Drop-front dress, 1810-1815 February 21, 2015
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Annapolis, MD United States  
    Pattern was excellently drafted and easy to follow. I would consider myself a beginning sewer and had very few issues with it, and was able to complete a dress for a friend on a very short timeline with a minimum of measurement and fitting! I used View A, with 3/4 sleeves, and fully lined the gown.
