1795-1799 Half-Robe

Plans are in the works to make a regency-era half robe.  Out come my two favourite books - Nancy Bradfield's Costumes in Detail and Janet Arnold's Patterns of Fashion 1. Both of these books are indispensable to a costumer's collection.

Underneath the half robe will be a round robe (or round gown) like the one that is presented in Norah Waugh's book, The Cut of Women's Clothes.

A half robe is also still on my to-sew list. Good luck with yours. Can't wait to see the result. :)
