We know it’s been a long, long wait for the third Scroop Patterns + Virgil’s Fine Goods collaboration, but we think it will have been worth it.

We put so much work into this pattern to make it as well fitted, historically accurate, easy to make, and fun to wear as possible. Hopefully you’ll like the result!

The Angelica Gown features three front bodice options, two back bodice options, and a floor length or trained skirt.  Mix and match bodice fronts and backs and skirts for a whole range of looks!

The detailed historically accurate sewing instructions cover everything you need to make your own beautiful versions, from first fitting to final trimming. There’s even a guide to making sleeve ruffles, tuckers, and fichu!

We’ve even developed an extremely clever pattern method for the skirt based on 18th century patterning techniques.

The pattern comes in bust sizes 30”-52” (76-132cm). To help you get the perfect fit there’s a 9-page fitting and pattern alteration guide.

Both views feature a fitted bodice which laces closed at the center front, a deeply pointed back, and just-past the elbow sleeves.

The sleeves may be snug, but clever patternmaking means they don’t restrict movement.

Thanks to Amber’s historical knowledge the patterns are filled with meticulous historical details that will help you get the late 1770s-1790s look just right.

View A has a plain bodice front with a short pointed front curve that ends in a truncated V, a three-panel back, and a skirt that finishes just above the floor.

View B features a longer sloped V at the front waist, optional serrated trim along the front waist edge, a two-panel back, and a slight train.

The Angelica Gown is the third collaboration between Scroop Patterns and Virgil’s Fine Goods. Our patterns combine Amber of Virgil’s Fine Goods’ extensive mantua making skills with my patternmaking skills.

Our goal is to bring you easy-to-use historical patterns with comprehensive size ranges and detailed historically-accurate instructions. The patterns are available as downloadable print-at-home patterns, to make historical sewing more accessible to sewists everywhere, and as paper patterns through Virgil’s Fine Goods and other stores.

We’re extremely proud of this pattern, and are so excited to see your versions!

All the gorgeous tester versions will be coming shortly! Their makes are so inspiring. They combined views, used our trim suggestions, and styled the gowns to their own taste.

    This looks gorgeous. I look forward to making it sometime. A quick possible typo: the last block of text (between the last two photos) starts ‘The Amalia Jacket is the third collaboration between Scroop Patterns and Virgil’s Fine Goods.’ Possibly this is meant to reference the dress not the jacket.

    • Thank you for catching the typo! We had fixed that but then the internet hiccup and I didn’t realise it hadn’t been caught in the save.
