Circa 1805-1810 Embroidered Empire Muslin Gown. Excellent quality embroidery in neoclassical motif. The gown is a white muslin, only lined in the bodice, and the rest of the gown is fairly sheer. Modified square neckline. Gathered bust. Tiny pouf sleeve caps over long straight arms.
I have been eagerly watching Gisele Human's WAIF unfurl from a small passion project to a now fully fledged jewellery line, and am so happy to exclusively debut this wonderful new shoot and her online shop!
