Robe à l'anglaise

with flowers and birds

Period: around 1780

This robe à l'anglaise was created for a historical celebration in a rococo castle garden.

It is made from a cotton print in the pattern and colours of the late 18th century with stylised flowers and birds. The centre back is cut without a waist seam throughout, while the rest of the skirt is attached to the stiffened bodice in very small pleats.

The underskirt is made of delicately embroidered cotton batiste. The hip roll and corset create the typical silhouette.
The skirt can be gathered upwards with ribbons so that the robe à l'anglaise can also be worn à la polonaise. The dress comes with a fichu (breast scarf) made of muslin.
