Empire Dress

Misses Sizes 6-16

This high-waisted dress known as "empire" was worn in the period following the French Revolution in the late 1700's.  The revealing style, requiring few undergarments, reflected a desire to return to simpler, classical Grecian dress after the excesses of the European nobility.  Narrow bodice is gathered into a skirt that is slim in front and full in back.  The optional full length train and sleeve details make it perfect for bridal fashion.
