Sack-Back Gown with a Half Skirt (robe à la française), anonymous, c. 1765 - c. 1775

brocade (textile), l 152cm. More details

The width of the skirt of this gown indicates it was worn at a formal occasion. The fabric suggests this as well: the foliage pattern in the silk fabric is woven in gold and silver thread. This dress has a half skirt, a tablier, instead of a full one, which only filled the opening at the front of the sack-back gown. Could the reason for this have been because it was less expensive?

This work belongs to Overjapon of manteau van zijden brokaat, met een crèmekleurig fond waarop veelkleurige zijden, gouden en zilveren bloemen zijn geweven (BK-NM-8432-A)
