Marie Antoinette's: Robe à l'Anglaise Or Robe à la français
Robe à l'Anglaise, 1770-75, Silk, metallic. The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The wonderful Robe à l'Anglaise, a pannier-less dress! Full skirt, and 'robe' which closes in the front but is open over the skirt. The back of the bodice comes to a point and is sewn into the skirt. This one is made of silk and has floral embroidery. The name means it is an English-styled gown. Robe à la française, 1760-70, Silk, cotton. The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Here is the ever flattering Robe à la français, which provides a most attractive figure to any woman. The skirt is full and rest on panniers and when coupled with a corset the waist appears very tiny. It also required the open-front robe, but the back was pleated and draped down over the skirt. This was also known as 'Sack-back'. Which do you prefer and why?
