Sheer White Regency Dress and Slip

From the seller:

An early Regency period 1820’s muslin dress and muslin under slip. The under slip is original to the dress. The dress has a high Empire waist and is decorated with multiple rows of pin tucking. The dress is unlined and has a back button and loop closure. The sleeve cuffs also have a button and loop closure. The collar and sleeve cuffs have double ruffles and the armscyes and waist are piped. The slip has a high Empire waist and a back button closure. The dress and slip are all hand stitched. It is very rare to find an early dress with its original under slip. Both the dress and under slip are in crisp and clean condition. The dress has no holes and no underarm discoloration. There are missing loops on the back closure. The slip has a couple of very small period mends on the bodice and a couple of tiny pencil tip holes. Dress measurements: Bust 32 Empire waist 28 Skirt length 38. Slip Measurement: Bust 32 Waist 28 Skirt length 35 ½.

From Me:

1810 Fashion Plate via Sensibility

Notice what the lady in yellow is wearing. This dress is very similar. Since the plate is from 1810, I'm putting this in the 1800's tag.
