Corset 1820 - 1839. Part 4 and sewing box.

I finish embroidering my corset, now I sewing (handmade) front and back with back stitch and to sew rows for cord and busk which also will be embroidered with zig zag stitch.

Today I bought a basket vintage sewing box. It is a little damage but I want to try give it a new image. I dont know how old it is but I think maybe from the beginning of the XXth century. The small decorating buttons made from silk threads, inside is green cotton.

Rococo charm fashion, Exhibition in Wilanów, Warsaw 1-26 June 2011

I must pologise.
I saw the finish exhibition in Wilanów. It was very interesting because the exhibition closed the competition about reconstruct and inspirations about 18th century fashions. This competition was for the young fashion designers from Poland.

The exhibition highlighted the work can be viewed and rewarded in two categories. In the category reconstructions you can see stunning gowns worn by the most famous court beauty Marquise de Pompadour and dress of Queen Marie Antoinette of France. Also see garments for men, both French and Polish, among them exquisite, embroidered batiste szustokor white shirt and short pants to the knees, white stockings and leather shoes with bows on the instep. Reply to this Polish national dress, made by design students of the Institute of Textile Architecture University of Łódź.

For me the best costumes made by the students od the Institute of Textile Architecture University of Łódź and Joanna Pojda for the second award in reconstruction category. Her costume was stunning. The costume is delicate, sofisticated and simple in the form and you can imagine really baroque dancer from porcelaine statue. The costume based on porcelain figurine (Johann Friedrich Lück, 1755) a pair baroque dancer ( male dancer) .
