1770 En Fourreau Gown 18" Dolls Clothes Pattern

21 reviews   |  

Create a beautiful historical fashion for your 18 inch doll! This gown by Thimbles and Acorns is based on the popular En Fourreau' dress style from the 1770's where the bodice and skirt at the center back were cut in one piece and pleated to fit. The gown and the matching petticoat are made of an 18th century reproduction print. The cuffs feature a small pleat at the inside elbow and the sides have hidden openings to access pockets. Dresses from this time period were often fastened in the front with straight pins..... for practical reasons, I opted to use snaps instead. The gown can be worn down or tied up with the hidden tapes to form a bustle. The petticoat is historically detailed with front and back ties that form pocket openings at the sides.

Supplies Needed:

  • Gown: 1/2 yard lightweight fabric such as cotton, linen, or silk. Not suitable for knits.1 yard 1/2 inch wide lace.
  • Bodice Lining: 1/6 yard lightweight fabric such as cotton batiste.
