Springtime Freshness

Rose, green, gold and brown Jacobean floral in a 100% cotton damask. Bodice is fully lined with working lacing that crisscrosses down apin-tucked, mock stomacher. The lacing is of the same fabric as the dress and slips through hidden loops to provide some flexibility for adjustment. A zipper is discreetly hidden under the arm, set into the side seam. Only you and I will know it’s there!  A deep hem at 38″ will give you an additional 4″ if you need to lengthen dress. Seams are finished with serving.
Wear this to DAR, CAR events or wherever you may participate in living history. Although this gown is not authentic for the hardcore reenact ors, I designed this gown with to have the appearance of a separate stomacher, robes and petticoats yet provide ease of a single garment for the modern wearer.

    My husband and I are colonial enthusiasts. We are always in costume when we travel to historic areas. After having the same seamstress for years, she suddenly disappeared. I searched for about a year for a new seamstress and tried several with disappointing results. I have bought one dress from Debbie and know that I have now found my new seamstress!! Her work is even better than the seamstress that I had before!! Even my husband loves my new dress! I can hardly wait to order another!
