Robe a la Polonaise Front by ColeV Robe a la Polonaise Front by ColeV
18th century Robe a la Polonaise. Silk taffeta with silk gauze sleeve ruffles, lined with linen. All hand-sewn in 18th century style. The gathered trim has been roll-hemmed along all of the edges. The waistcoat fronts and the outside front pieces attach around the neckline, armscyes, and side-back seams. Two pleats in the outside front helps to shape over the side hoops. Pinned closure in front.
Popular style of the 1770s, not to be confused with gowns that have a Polonaised skirt.

Lovely! I suppose you're wearing a wig? It looks gorgeous! I think I should get myself a wig, my hair is always a time-consuming problem when getting ready for balls etc. I haven't bought a wig before because I've always preferred my own hair and I haven't found a decent looking wig with affordable price..

This gown is so lovely! I'm not crazy about the Polonaise style in general (somehow I am always afraid that they are going to come part at the top where the "waistcoat" attached, they make me nervous), but this example is very elegant and regal. Aaand it has just the right about of fills and ruffles. Very nice indeed.

It's all sewn as one neckline, so it'd take a lot of effort to come apart! And it didn't seem like the right amount of trim half-way through!

I bet not! That's a whole lot of hemming. I bet you're really good at it now though...

Oh wow... I've never seen anyone make an actual Polonaise. Plenty of Polnaised skirts, but not the full thing. Maybe I haven't looked in the right places. :) But anyway, fashion plates made them look great and I was curious about what they really look like in person. It's great to see it now!
