Before I started working on this project, it happens that I had the opportunity to purchase a collection of antique textiles from a textile collector and I immediately fell in love with this red cotton satin fabric and I envisioned to make a garment for one of my dolls. I think the red color of her skirt blends beautifully with the colors of her gown.
Robe à l'Anglaise: this gown evolved from the mantua. It also has similar details in design with the Robe a la Francaise, but the key difference is the back. The robe à l'Anglaise was never formal enough to be an official court gown. It still has the tight back which makes a fitted bodice.
The bonnet, fichu, frills and apron are made of a lovely antique lace. It dates from about 1920's, made in France.
