Abstract:

Clothing has always been an outward expression of the wealth and social position of the wearer. That is, people wear not only what they want to but what they can afford. This was readily apparent in the 18th century. This guide provides an introduction to the cut and construction of a mid-18th century sack-back gown. The pattern provided is of a basic, unadorned gown. With the appropriate choice of fabric, construction details, and surface trimmings he pattern can be used to create a gown suitable for the period from 1730 to 1770. The pattern is based primarily on an original mid-century gown in the collection of Parks Canada.
