Rococo Court Garment

St Gallen, Switz...






This is a garment I made for a uni project, everything is dyed, box pleated, hand embroidered and screen printed by me.
The top layer is made from a fabric that is 60% hemp and 40% cotton, making it hard wearing and more comfortable than usual to wear.
I also made the underpinnings.

Material Notes

Steel boning, poly boning, Hemp, cotton,




Garment Type
Classic, Evening Wear, Other, Vintage
Cotton, Blends, Other
