I’ve had this fabric for years and knew I wanted to make something eventually. I have the same pattern in a brown colorway that I hope to make a slightly different design. The gown was fit over different stays than worn in these photos but it still works very well with the pinned stomacher which gives some leeway for fitting adjustments at the front.
