Muslin Dresses about 1800 Hamburg Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe
From one of my favorite books:
Voila: Glanzstucke Historischer Moden, 1750-1960
Robe á la Française, Yellow Silk Taffeta Dress, England c. 1760 (via Kyoto Costume Institute Digital Archives)
Sack gown and petticoat, silk lampas, c. 1730, French,
Costume based on the portrait of Elizabeth I, attr. to William Scrots. c. 1546.
I’ve seen the finished, but never the lead up photos. GREAT photo set. One of the only hoods I’ve seen ever done well. Fabulous work.
Mantua, 1740-45, Embroidered silk with colored silk & silver thread. Court dress was an exclusive & ornate style of clothing worn by the aristocracy who attended Court. The style is based on the 17th-century mantua. The shell, the quintessential Rococo motif, constitutes the basis of the embroidery pattern. Leafy scrolls, latticed arcades and tassels are also featured, as well a profusion of realistically rendered flowers worked in a variety of coloured silks in satin stitch & french knots.
