or a recent find and accurate:
Short Gown and Petticoat for Laundry:
High Waisted Shortgown and Petticoat Pattern
By Period Impressions. (note that the shortgown seems a little long in drawing-may want to shorten it)
Middle Class Dress for Special Ocassions:
Bibb Front Muslin Dress 1800-1812 Pattern
Dress does not have to be muslin and can be long or short sleeved.
Outerwear can be either cotton solid color or appropriate period print. Please acquire sample for review.
This dress replaces my previous suggestion for the Sense and Sensibility gown which I thought had an easy to sew pattern, but has an imperfect back bodice.
