This creates a beautiful vertical silhouette that is ageless, usually requiring no corset to achieve the look that was inspired by flowing Grecian robes. Fabrics were light and delicate. The look was more like a sheer nightgown than a dress. This required women to accessorize with flesh colored pantaloons, chemises to cover the exposed bosom during the day, and warmer fabrics and undergarments as the weather demanded. Wearing white was seen as sign of status and mostly worn at night. Lawn, muslin, and batiste were popular fabric choices. Our Regency era-inspired dresses are perfect for your summer event!
