A fabulous theatrical costume for the Regency period for 1810s -1820s.  Made approx 20 years ago for stage use.  Ideal for Jane Austin plays - this was used in a stage production of Pride and Prejudice. 

The outfit includes a floral cotton dress with burgundy lace trim which can be worn for the day time scenes, a white cotton apron for the baking scenes, and a straw bonnet with burgundy ribbon ties and white lace trim with white  flowers.  A fabulous costume made for professional theatre use and superb quality fabrics. 

The dress is cotton fabric - in floral design with lilac, pink, white flowers.  The dress is classic Georgian style with square neckline trimmed with red lace, high waistband and short puffed sleeves trimmed with lace.  The dress has burgundy lace at the waistband with a red rose flower.  At the hem are rows of burgundy ribbon and lace.  The dress has an Empire Line Silhouette and is ankle length.  It is fully lined and fastens with a zipper at the back. 
There is a white cotton apron for the baking scene. 
The hat is a straw bonnet with burgundy trim and fabulous flowers at the side. It has white roses at the side and green trimmings and there is white lace around the brim and crown of the hat. 

I hope you can see from my photos that this is a really well made and quality costume.  The attention to detail and the fine quality fabric give this fabulous costume and authentic look and will be a stunning costume for any event.   

SIZE small -  PLEASE CHECK THESE MEASUREMENTS.  I would guess a size 8-10 in UK size ( size 6 USA) The bust measures 32 inches.  From armpit to armpit is 16 inches.  Waist size 28 inches.  Shoulder to shoulder is 15 inches.  Length from nape of neck to hem 50 inches.   The bonnet will fit most head sizes as a medium fitting.   
Condition -  Very good condition - there is hardly any sign of wear - there are no stains under the arms, no holes or tears and no obvious damage.  The fabric is strong and sturdy - and clean and ready to wear. 

A fabulous costume for a vintage fashion event - or a great display piece. 
Please see photos and email any questions - I am happy to help.
