Sometimes called a bib front or pinned front gown, this early 19th-century style gown is comfortable, adjustable, and appropriate for the 1812, Jane Austen, and Regency eras. Made entirely out of cotton, the structure of the gown has been based on extant garments. The gown comes up over the arms and shoulders and ties together with two ties across the bust. Then the front panel pins at the sides of the breast while a tie goes around the trunk and secures with a bow. A small drawstring at the top of the front panel allows the wearer to adjust for a more accurate fit to their figure.
The long sleeves add a dramatic flare as they hit low on the hand. The natural fall of the shoulder and arms highlights the trend of the era.
