Oh la la! Indulge in the captivating allure of the Mauve and Gold Robe à la Française Gown, where every stitch is a tribute to the timeless elegance of the 18th century.
The true showstopper of this gown lies in its meticulously crafted “sacque back” design. The sacque back, a hallmark of Rococo fashion, drapes the fabric in a lavish cascade of artful pleats that emanate from the shoulders. Each fold is a tribute to the meticulous craftsmanship of yesteryears, giving the gown a voluminous yet graceful silhouette that’s both regal and romantic.
The gown’s two toned irridescent fabric is meticulously gathered and pleated to create an intricate interplay of light and shadow, reminiscent of the interwoven stories of the past. The ruched trim along the edges adds an exquisite texture, drawing the eye along the curves and contours of the design.
As you glide through a ballroom or a formal garden, the sacque gown sways with your every movement, a dance of fabric that captures the essence of a bygone era. It’s a dress that not only speaks of historical grandeur but also creates an enchanting visual rhythm, turning every step you take into a mesmerizing performance.
This item includes one Robe à la Française gown with a coordinating skirt. This gown does not include the supportive undergarments you may need to create a historical silhouette. We recommend wearing underneath this gown a set of 18th century stays, a chemise, a petticoat, and a historically accurate bum roll.
