Rococo wedding dress

Robe à l'anglaise

Period: ca. 1780

This simple historical wedding dress, a robe à l'anglaise of the Rococo period, is made from an original cut of iridescent ice-blue silk taffeta without elaborate embellishments. Only the neckline and sleeves are pleated in typical rococo style. The centre back is cut continuously, i.e. without a waist seam, giving the dress with its small train a special elegance.

The corset and panier serve as a base.
