This is a DIGITAL sewing pattern based on an extant dress from about 1840.

This dress is a replica of a beautiful extant dress from the 1840s, made from a fine block printed muslin. This kind of dress would have been worn in the morning, on hot summer days, or as a maternity dress, and is called a wrapper.
Made from printed calico fabric this style was worn by women of the working class during the pre-civil war era.
The original dress is completely hand-stitched. The fashion fabric is mounted on a tight-fitting lining bodice and closes at the center front, the fullness of the front panel is gathered with drawstrings to fit the waist.
The skirt is made from several panels of fabric and attached to the bodice, plain at the front, cartridge pleated at the back portion.
The one-piece sleeve is cut on the bias and has an over-sleeve, trimmed with a narrow ruffle from fashion fabric. Most of the seams and edges have a very narrow piping as usual during the era. This is a hand-sewing pattern, many steps can only be done by hand!

This dress can be worn without a corset, but over a chemise and a corded petticoat.

Also suitable for cosplay or steampunk costumes.
