Robe a la française
rococo dress is called robe ŕ la française and was worn not only
in France in ca 1760. This type of the dress was worn at least as
a formal dress till nearly the end of 18th
century. The dress consists of the chemise with lace ruffles,
the corset, the demi-panier, the petticoat with the trimmed
forepart, the triangular stomacher and the dress with the
typical loose pleats at the back and the fitted bodice as the
lining. The dress is trimmed with ribbons and flounces. There is the small bonnet and the lace decoration on the neck.
The dress is made according to an adapted pattern of Kybalová
(Dějiny odívání: Barok a Rokoko) and
is inspired by original dresses in The Kyoto Costume
Institute (Móda. Dějiny odívání 18., 19. a 20. století). This
dress was made in 2005 and it isn’t as precise as later works.
This dress can be seen in the chateau Buchlovice.
