18th century dress, beautiful! LOVE
This dress in a radiant blue cotton jacquard material with golden pattern is tailored from an original dress-pattern from the later rococo period under Louis XVI. It is worn with the, typical of the time, pannier (hooped skirt). The underskirt and sleeve-linings are from an ivory coloured silk-brocade with floral patterning.
