1790 Open Pelisse and Regency Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

12 reviews   |  

You can create a beautiful historical dress for your doll with the 1790s Open Pelisse and Regency Dress Pattern by Thimbles and Acorns!  This PDF pattern will fit most 18-inch dolls such as American Girl®.

Around the turn of the century, Romantic and Grecian dress styles that were lighter and simpler than those of past periods became fashionable. Hair styles gentled, stays and petticoats were minimalized, and gowns in plain, subdued colors featured a high waistline just below the bust.

This pattern features a 1790s style Pelisse with a front belt closure that sits just below the breast, a sailor collar, and a double box pleat in the back. The 3/4 inch sleeves have tucks at the inside elbow, lending a graceful curve to the sleeve.

 

Supplies Needed:
-Dress:  1/2 yard semi sheer fabric such as organdy, silk or muslin.  1/2 yard lightweight fabric such as cotton law, silk, linen or batiste.  Not suitable for knits.
-Dress Lining:  1/6 yard lightweight fabric such as cotton batiste or muslin (scrap pieces or fat quarter work well).  Lining may be white or another color that compliments the dress fabric.  Not suitable for knits. 
-Pelisse:  1/3 yard lightweight fabric such as lawn, silk, linen, or batiste. Not suitable for knits.  
-Pelisse Lining: 1/6 yard lightweight fabric such as cotton batiste or muslin (scrap pieces or fat quarter work well).  Lining may be white or another color that compliments the dress fabric.  Not suitable for knits.
-Closures:  For dress, 3 size 4/0 snaps. Instead of snaps, 2 inches of 1/2 inch wide hook and loop tape or 1/4 inch buttons may be used instead.  For Pelisse, 2 - 1/4 inch buttons.
-Finishing: 3 small buttons to conceal snaps, 22-inches of 1/2 inch ribbon to tie at the waist of the dress (optional)

This is a nice pattern.

I did enjoy making this outfit to add to my household's historical collection. Next time I am thinking about adding embroidery!
