Regency Style

Found this stunning coral gauze and satin dress from 1820 for auction on Lofty.com while doing research for my Regency-era historical romance novel. Here’s the description:

Coral red gauze with satin accents, rolls of wood padded fabric known as Rouleaux trimming the sleeves and hem, with bell-shaped skirt, full upper sleeve, tapered cuff, hand-stitched, high waisted, with tapering sleeves, satin accents and padded trim…

It’s only 700 dollars 🙂 Can’t buy it, but I’ll use it as inspiration for one of Charlene’s dresses. I love the demure lace collar paired with the sensual satin bow around the empire waist.
