#130 Ladies’ Regency Wrapping Front Trained or Untrained Gown, Redingote, and Tunic—C. 17981813 View A is a low stomacher apron front style trained or untrained gown. The front of the skirt falls below the bodice, and fastens over the bottom of the wrapping bodice in the ‘en coulisse’ style. This means it has a drawstring in front that ties under the sides and back of the skirt to secure the front. The front of the skirt would also be pinned to the bottom of the bodice. The sleeves are a one piece style that can be cut short, elbow length, or long. View B is in the Redingote style. The skirt is ankle length, opens in front and wraps the same way the bodice does. It has a tall falling collar, lapels, and an optional detachable short cape. View C is a wrapping front tunic, meant to be worn over another dress. It is sleeveless, about knee length, and the hem is shorter in front than in back. The skirt opens in front and overlaps like the bodice. All bodices have four total darts. The darts can be converted to gathers. All Views have a narrow back and the skirts are gathered where they attach to the back of the bodices. More information, including recommended fabrics, is inside the pattern. Note: The sleeves and collars are interchangeable between #129 and #130 Yardage
