Round gown in Polish art collections

Round gowns in Polish art collection has not been anywhere so far examined. This can be difficult because of the large loss of works of art during the war, but it's what's survived - it can give an interesting view how the outfit was taken when the country which was at one time oppressed political conflicts. Because the costumes from the era survived little help in this can be miniature portraits, which show the outfit with great care. Mainly I inspired for this dress a portrait of a feamous Lady  from Krockow : Louise von Krockow (1749 - 1803).  

Louise, the wife of Joachim Heinrich Reinhold von Krockow, was one of the unconventional characters who for centuries lived Krokow lands. Endowed with extraordinary beauty and brilliant mind countess, in the absence of her husband managed the goods from Krockow. (...) Louise enjoyed considerable fame at the same time, which confirms the fact of receipt of King Frederick the Great claimed the men's grain trade law. (...) Password female emancipation was not foreign to her anyway. Endowed with a strong dose of wit, intelligence and artistic sense, shone in the circles of intellectuals and artists. It is worth mentioning, inter alia, her friendship with Immanuel Kant, the famous philosopher wykładającym at the University of Königsberg.(...) Both were at times philosophical debates and intimate conversation that inspired the philosopher to the hard intellectual work, and Louise motivated to further philosophical inquiry. The result was a book published in Berlin about the education of girls (Pädagogische Ideen, ed. 1793)*

Petticoat for round dress is finish


Tomorrow I finish high waist petticoat. All is hand made. It was very simple to modelled pattren and sewing it. I used some big scraps of cotton and sewing together with new (for me) mixed stitched - running stitch with back stitch. Here helped me post from Kleidung um 1800The back of the petticoat is tied to  cotton ribbons. The shoulder straps that are long in power depending on the needs lengthen or shorten them. The skirt has 5 tucks. It is very simple, classic and comfortable undress.
