18th Century Polonaise
Added Jan 20, 2011
This is a Robe Anglaise, polonaised, with matching petticoat and hand stitched stomacher, based on a pattern from Wingeo.
The gown is made from a printed Linen that I dyed rust. The lining for the bodice and petticoat is rust coloured cotton sateen.
The vintage lace and cotton lawn of the fichu were tea dyed and hand stitched. The pleated ribbon trim was hand stitched.
The gillyflower stomacher is linen, boned with nylon baleen replacement boning, and hand embroidered.
