Robe a la Polonaise 1780

Robe à la française dressed à la polonaise, ca England, the Mint Museum I love everything about this. Love the crazy hat shape! Also love the different height of the ruffle in the front of the skirt.


This reminds me of a beautiful dress my lovely goddess friend Spoelstra made for the Art Instatute a few years ago. Her version is way sexier and punk :) Robe a l’anglaise, ca 1780 Germany, Landesmuseum Wurttemberg
