Full High Crown
1830's to 1840's Day Dress without Pelerine, 19th Century
Lowell Mill
     This page has two different dresses for the same time period with two options. Both are lined & bone bodices. If you notice this time period has higher up waist band, approx. 1-2" above belly button. This is the corded petticoat time period, although new starters use the 4 bone hoop, till they can afford or have the time to make the corded petticoat. (See Hoop/ corded petticoat section). This time period is approx. 125" in diameters, at the bottom of skirt. So if wish the skirt to fuller put a notation in the comment field

    Full Crown dress is from 1830's up until 1836's. Which doesn't mean after 1836 this dress wasn't worn, since most women couldn't afford to throw anything away.

    This dress has rectangle skirt panels and scooped bodice with dropped shoulders with gigot sleeves. The hem at ankle length. Closes in back with hook & eyes. The drawing has it with a little fuller sleeves then what it really is.

    Lowell Mill dress is from the 1820's up until 1836's. This is not the same dress a "A". This dress more of a square neckline, off the shoulders, then the top of the sleeves are knife/ dart going downward to have a smoother look. Then the sleeves pucker out to a gather looking sleeve, then down to more of a tailored sleeve.

    The Pelerine Caplet shown in the picture below, is like a fichu-u, or cape, a little hard to described. It can be ordered to go with either "A" or "B" as a dress up item. Can be done simply for cold weather or very decorative for evening wear and dress occasions.

    Bertha, as shown in photo below (sample B) as white at top of bodice. This is like what we'd call today as a dickie. The one below is white cotton, pleated down front with stand up collar, buttons half way up the back. There is a front and back, which then ties on both sides at the waist. 

    Trim and Style (Use): The amount of trim varies with the intended use and social status of the owner. It can vary from no trim for a simple work/day dress to very fancy for a fancy tea or evening dress. The shopping cart offers five (5) levels for this dress: Work dress, Day Dress (simple trim), Day/Tea Dress (moderate trim), Tea dress (fancy), Evening dress (very fancy). We will add more pictures to show samples of the different levels as we can. For other variations or amounts of trim, please call or email us and talk about your needs/desires.

    Optional: A Bertha or Pelerine Caplet, buttons or hook & eyes and diameters of bottom of skirt.

Lowell Mill Dress by Past Patterns. #806, 19th Century

Lowell Mill Dress
by Past Patterns. #806

According to family records, this dress was worn by Mary Gregg Butler. The original appears to have been made in the late 1820s or early 1830s when the sleeves were full. After the full sleeve fell from favor around 1836, the sleeves on the dress were banded down. The pelerine caplet is worn with the full sleeves.

   The original fabric on the dress with the banded-down sleeves is a fine white cotton print with red, blue and brown flowers, leaves and vines. The fabric for the full-sleeved dress is a large poinsettia with morning trumpet flowers and large broad leaves.

   This pattern is multi-sized 8 through 20. Sizes 8-14 require 7-1/4 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric; sizes 16-20 require 7-3/4 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric. Newly updated in 2008.

1830s Full High Gown pattern #003. By Past Patterns, 19th Century

1830s Full High Gown.
by Past Patterns #003

   The 1830's Full High Gown is copied from an original in The Hermitage Clothing Collection. The Hermitage, located in Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

   The Hermitage gown is dated to the 1830's by its rectangular skirt panels and dropped shoulders with gigot sleeves. In 1836 the gigot sleeves became unfashionable and were replaced with a sleeve that had a fullness below the elbow. Before 1836, fashion plates illustrated the hem at ankle length, but after 1836 the hem descended to the instep. The gown closes in the back with four hooks and eyes; one at the neck and three on the waistband.

   Sizes 10-14 require 7 1/4 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric; sizes 16-20 require 7 3/8 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric.
