Robe à la francaise

For a Rococo ball
 
Vorderansicht
 

Period: 1780

We crafted this robe à la francaise from apricot-silver-colored silk as commissioned work for a Rococo ball.
The pattern's sophisticated color combination conveys an impression of an undefined yet very distinct color tone, which was very popular during the Rococo. The clothing has been designed based on an original cut and thus consists of a stomacher, a jupe and a manteau; an additional linen bodices provides inner lacing to adjust the width. Skirt and stomacher were made from the same fabric as the manteau. The latter tapers off in a short beak-shape at the back.



As it was suitable for a gala ball gown the sleeves are furnished with generous lace beneath the three sleeve flounces. They are made of antique tulle lace. The finery of sculptural garnish and pleats was edged with delicate lace.


A large pannier serves as undergarment. To match the overall impression it was covered with slightly apricot-colored damask. The eyelets are handmade.
