Before the Automobile: C. 1800 robe à l'Athénienne

Please take a moment to visit this site for an exquisite photo-essay of a classical Athenian-Regency style gown. It's a bib front too.  It's absolutely stunning.

this dress is sublime! quite racey too. I like that it is purely a white drop front dress. its really set off by her hair color and the mustard yellow wrap. Can we get away with wearing grecian sandals like she did in the photos and still be in period?
