Robe à la Française

This absolutely gorgeous gown was sewn in 1765 of blue silk with gold trimmings. Flowers have been hand-embroidered with golden thread - notice that both skirt and petticoat are of the same fabric. This alone attests to the luxuriousness of the fabric used - it is simply not necessary to add more to it.

Dress (robe a la Francaise style) in blue silk (1765).
