(Code: FWP215)

This high-waisted dress known today as "empire" was worn in the period following the French Revolution in the late 1700s. The revealing style requiring few undergarments reflected a desire to return to simpler classical Grecian dress after the excesses of the European nobility. Narrow bodice is gathered into a skirt that is slim in front and full in back. The optional full-length train and sleeve details make it perfect for a bridal fashion.

Suggested fabrics: Soft lightweight or medium-weight fabrics such as cotton gauze, batiste, dotted Swiss, rayon challis, silk very lightweight silk, velvet with drape.
