Hand-sewn 1770s Robe a l'Anglaise. Gown is made from madder red linen, petticoat from a white/gold striped linen. The back pleats are very narrow and face toward the center back, which is a less common construction. There is a matching petticoat to the gown as well. The front is closed with pins. The sleeves have three small tucks to shape in a curve over the elbow.
The colour is gorgeous, and I can really see the time and accuracy that has gone into the construction. The bonnet is pretty amazing too!
Very nice! And I loooove the bonnet!
It's amazing that you sewed this by hand. I can barely sew a button without getting tired. Bravo! Great as always.
Wow, superb work, there's not much else I can say!
