Neoclaccisism, ca. 1810-1850

Long dress in white cotton with a short train, a round neckline and fitted bodice ending just below the bust. The bodice in patterned cotton has tucks for the bust at the front. The back has two princess seams and a central opening fastened with six buttons with a metal core that are lined in cotton. The sleeve, in cotton taffeta, is long with folds on the shoulder and underarm joining seam. It cinches the volume with a thin cord and tightens again at the cuff in a fold decorated with small tucks and the application of embroidery. The skirt is attached to the bodice in a straight, flat seam at the front and gathered at the centre of the back. The hem is stiffened with a border in the same fabric.

The fabric and tailoring are reminiscent of the Neoclassical style, however from 1810 on, certain structural details emerged that inform us of the start of the evolution toward Romanticism, as occurs in this case in the bodice tucks to fit to the bust and in particular, the sleeve design.
