Folkwear Patterns Ladies Sewing Pattern Empire Dress

£14.99

This high waisted dress known today as empire was worn in the period following the French Revolution in the late 1700s. The revealing style, requiring few undergarments, reflected a desire to return to simpler, classical Grecian dress after the excesses of the European nobility. Narrow bodice is gathered into a skirt that is slim in front and full in back. The optional full length train and sleeve details make it perfect for a bridal fashion. Suggested fabrics: Soft, lightweight or medium weight fabrics such as cotton gauze, batiste, dotted Swiss, rayon challis, silk, very lightweight silk velvet with drape.
