    This style of gown was worn in the countryside of Limousin, France in the 1530's, just before Limousin became famous for its limouge porcelain.
    Made of cotton velveteen and half-lined in satin, this gown has sleeves that tie on with ribbon, a nice option for hot days.
    The bodice does the job as a corset to lift the bosom and hold in the tummy.
    It looks nice worn with either the Classic Chemise or the Ruffled Chemise.
    Trims may vary. This makes each garment unique so you won't run into some one else at a fair or event wearing the exact same outfit.

    Instructions for Putting on the Journe Gown

    1. Put on the chemise with the drawstring in front. Don't tie the drawstring yet.
    2. Put the dress on like a shirt. Adjust the chemise so that 1/4 of an inch of the chemise is evenly visible around the neckline. If using the ruffled chemise, adjust it so the ruffle is even round the neckline.
    3. Lace each side so that it gaps equally. Side laces may be as tight as you like, but make them tight enough to hold your cleavage (see next step.)
    4. Floofing part; we let gravity help us here. Bend at the waist, reach under the chemise, cup breast in hand and pull up and over towards the opposite shoulder. The more you pull, the more cleavage you will get. Do the same with the other breast. This creates maximum cleavage. (It might be helpful to do this before tightening the last few button holes on one side to allow room for your hand.)
    5. Tie forearms. Adjust ribbons for your arm length.
    6. Tuck side laces into dress under the arm.
    We hope you enjoy your Renaissance gown.
