I constructed this 1780s ensemble to wear to various 18th century events. If you remember, I decided in the beginning of September to construct a robe a la anglaise and accompanying undergarments. Most of my commentary can be confined to captions (which also allows me to include more photos, so that is exciting!). Enjoy!
One thought on “Project Journal: 1780s Ensemble Part VI: Open Gown and Petticoat”
Would you accept a commission for an open gown like this? For economical reasons I do not need a petticoat, stays and chemise… I love this open gown, but I am not skilled enough yet to make my own!
