Baroque dress based on the painting

'A Woman Washing her Hands'
 
 

Period: 1655, Netherlands,

The Dutch painter Gerard ter Borch created his work "A Woman Washing her Hands" around 1655. No other painter of this period paid such attention to the clothing of his customers as ter Borch did. As member of the same social class as his sitters he did not need to adulate them. His paintings are a rich seam of high Baroque suits.


We crafted this Baroque dress from light green brocade and antique, filigree gold braid with metal threads.
The wide, gathered skirt is laid over a hip padding with several strengthened underskirts underneath (except for Spain the hoop petticoat was no longer used in Europe at that time). The strengthened peplum was furnished with a peplum.


The very wide sleeves are lightly gathered at the shoulders. The cuffs – likewise puffy – are pleated at the upper end.
A silk cloth covers the generous neckline.
