Robe à la francaise

for the Carnival of Venice
 
Ansicht vorn


Period: about 1770

This Rococo dress, a robe à la francaise that can also be worn as polonaise with hitched up manteau, was created as commissioned work for the Carnival of Venice.
The inwrought linen bodice is furnished with an inner lacing at the back. The internal straps allow the gathering of the manteau and thus the wearing of the clothing à la polonaise, which was quite common. The realization of this dress is again based on an original cut.


The fabric consists of blue-grey silk taffeta with interwoven antique golden blossom tendrils. As garnish we decided for very fashionably padded festoons from this epoch.


A small damask pannier and a corset, covered with antique-golden silk and stitched after an original pattern, serve as undergarment. The corset was additionally fortified with cross boning; its eyelets were sewn by hand.
