    1-11-11 Indienne Style Print 1780's open robe of hand block wood printed cotton , the ruffled large neck with front opening, full skirt with two pocket openings, doubled ruffled below elbow sleeves, the bodice lined with white linen, the creamy background cotton printed with an informal trellis design of large indigo, madder and ochre Indian inspired flowers, with intricate fillings, tendrils and leaves, shoulder to back hem 59 in; 1.50 cm Comments This was probably a polonaise. Amazing rare 1780's print. Indienne prints were printed or painted in India, the Europeans copying in 1759. Printed cottons were hugely popular for both furnishing and dress with their exotic bright polychrome colours and because they could be washed. They were called Indienne meaning from India, whilst in France they were called toile peinte (hand painted cloth) and in England chintz derived from the Hindi word chint meaning a brightly painted cotton.

open robe - this could be a fun addition to my blue regency with the sea shell embroidery :) I could add more sea shells to the hem of the dress to make it more of a look - maybe the robe could be a dusty purple or dark blue-gray
