Reconstructing History #RH822 - Open Robe Anglais Sewing Pattern with Polonaise Option
In the late 17th century the lounging robe or robe de chambre began to be worn outside the bedchamber as an informal day dress. The pleats folded into the back of the gown were stitched down and the Mantua was born.In the 1730s the Mantua changed. This change came with a new name for the gown: robe en fourreau or robe anglais.Use this pattern, based on extant and pictorial examples, to make an Open Robe Anglais or Gown en fourreau with stomacher as worn in early decades of the 18th century and Polonaise skirts worn in later decades.Fits busts 30½"-48" and waists 23"-41". All sizes in one envelope.Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you've come to expect from Reconstructing History.
