The Vintage/Romantic Collection / Empire Dress

 

 Previous <

 >Next 

 

This high-waisted dress known today as "empire" was worn in the period following the French Revolution. The revealing style, requiring few undergarments, reflected a desire to return to simpler, classical Grecian dress after the excesses of the 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. Misses 6-16.
