1780s “Zone Front” Gown (2011)

I wanted to dip my toe in the late-18th century waters, but I wasn’t quite ready to delve into a 1790s redingote when I created this late 1780s dress.  The cutaway “zone front” (a modern term not used in period) from the red-and-blue striped silk reveals a cream silk satin with a matching petticoat.
