There is a particular style in English Regency Fashion which has always interested me, the dress with no under bust seam. This style is particular to England and is featured in fashion plates from around 1807-1811. My interest is how you would re-create this style? Looking at the various examples in fashion plates the dress still fits well. You can still see the shape of the body. As I am only referencing from fashion plates you must also allow for the difference between artistic license and reality. I would think the back is still cut with the curved side back seam and typical back pattern cutting of this period. Perhaps the dresses had an internal cord or tie which was attached at the centre front or back only and would give some sort of of control over the shape? Next making project perhaps??
