1840's Ciociaria traditional costume, made to measure.

The gown is made of linen and includes: one linen gown (consisting of a bodice and a skirt ), one linen shirt with 2 lace inserts along the arms (like in the pictures), and two linen aprons (one embroidered).
The bodice is reinforced with spiral steel bones (not visible), lined with fabric made by natural fibers and has a spiral lacing on the front: the eyelets/ grommets are hand-covered by silk thread. The skirt is closed on the sides and has a decoration made with a different fabric near the dress hem like shown in the pictures.
The shirt is pleated and decorated like in the picture: the lace will be as matching as possible to the color of the shirt fabric.
The aprons are made of linen and one is machine-embroidered on the front.

Undergarments, veil and jewelry are not included, but they can be requested: see the following “custom orders” section.
Please note: this type of dress requires at least the correct corset and petticoat to achieve the correct silhouette.

The gown will be made in the color/colors of your choice, but being a traditional costume, if you want to maintain the historical accuracy, I will recommend/suggest certain colours (like red, blue, green, yellow) and types of fabrics (linen or wool): please send a message to know the available combinations or if you want/prefer wool fabric.
