1875-80 Robe à la Polonaise/Robe a l'anglaise/ Part 1


Marie Antoinette vous embrasse!


I finally finished the Rococo Gown!

Rococo is very hard to do. With the boning and double skirts and everything.... But the reason it took so long is because i could not find the right light-blue fabric for the petticoat. There where moments when i was so pissed off that i wanted to give up working on it.
Then, a person i admire very much, said `Don`t let your hobby stress you. You should celbrate finding the right material!` So i did and went to a fabric store where i never was before, but always wanted to go. I got in and saw light blue silk right in front of me. And i knew it would work.

So this is a dress that is inspired by a Gown from JanetArnold- Patterns of fashion 1. It always was my favourite dress and i am very happy with how it turned out.  It reminds me of Marie Antoinette right before the revolution so i made Barbie this kind of more natural hairstyle.

Since i have holidays this week i have more time to go out to take pics. Because i like the dress down, i mean without it pulled into a polonaise, i decided to do also a post like this. So for the first part, the dress is more like a Robe a l'anglaise. But there is more to come these days!


Enjoy...


Listening to:  Concerto in G - Vivaldi (Marie Antoinette Soundtrack)












The pics are taken in the castle in Halbturn/Austria(www.schlosshalbturn.com/), which belonged to Marie Theresia, mother of Marie Antoinette. I used Renaissance Fair Barbie and Hipstamatic on Iphone.


Enoy summer, go and have an adveture!


Be kind to one another...
