Biedermeier – Crinoline dress inspired by

"Les Modes Parisiennes"
 
 

Period: Late Romantic period, around 1850

This ball gown is based upon a drawing from the fashion magazine "Les Modes Parisiennes" from the year 1853. The top on the other hand was inspired by the famous portray of Princess Carolath from 1855.


We crafted this dress from light blue, hand-woven raw silk and trimmed it with more than a thousand faceted glass stones. These glass stones were sewn on by hand and according to cut to emphasize the cut lines even further. Bertha collar (Victorian collar with décolletage adornment) and sleeves were edged with antique tulle lace.


Distinctive of that time is the multi-tiered skirt under which women wore a crinoline (petticoat). A corset ensures a slender waist.
