Early 1810's Regency Striped Dress

From the seller:

An early 1810-1820 Regency period two tone gold umbra silk dress that has recently been de-accessioned from a museum collection. The dress is all hand stitched. The silk fabric has an overall floral pattern. The dress has a high Empire waist and short puffed over sleeves. The neckline and puffed over sleeves are trimmed with white silk. The bodice is lined with linen. The skirt is unlined except for a band of printed cotton at the edge of the hemline. The skirt hemline has two rows of pin tucking and padded cording. The dress has a tie closure at the back waist. The dress is in very good condition. There is a small white spot on one shoulder, a few tiny holes some minor soiling and a modern snap has been added to the back. The snap can easily be removed. Antique clothing is for display only and should not be worn. Bust 34 High waist 32 Front skirt length 52 back length 56.

From Me:

Probably about 1813 based on those sleeves.
