Post Re: The 18th century dresses.
Here is a little back ground information on the dress (with the massive hoop) .



"One of the most impressive items of clothing in the Rijksmuseum collection is this eighteenth-century silk wedding gown. The dress is nearly two metres * wide and almost entirely embroidered with a colourful floral motif. The gown was probably made for Helena Slicher (1737-1776), who married Baron Aelbrecht van Slingelandt (1732-1801) at the age of 22. Although the ceremony took place on 4 September 1759, the age of the actual dress is less certain. Given the pattern of the embroidery it may date from the wedding of Helena's mother Catharina Cornelia Temminck (1696-1782). Nevertheless, the wide model and the shape of the sleeves are features especially associated with the third quarter of the eighteenth century."

* 2 meters is approximately six feet*

I still cannot believe that the hoops in the blue dress are six feet.

Well you can order it, I’ve seen some web pages… I wouldn’t do that because I don’t see any opportunity to wear it and I don’t want it to be hidden in my closet… :( Still, 18th century dress would definitely inspire me to make my wedding dress or dress for some other special event. :angel8:

So funny, I was going to ask if anyone had a photo of an 18th century wedding gown & then I saw the reference to the GRAND, GORGEOUS Wedding Gown with magnificient hoops measuring 2 meters across - EXTRAORDINARY! This is what I'm talking about - if I was going to wear one of these beautiful creations then I would OWN IT and be taking up an entire hallway with my lovely garment.

How I envy these ladies and their beautiful clothes and shoes. I tell you, I would step into the corsett, hoops, heavy fabric, uncomfortable shoes - I would do it all for just a moment to walk in the halls of Versailles as a Courtier during MA's time. Imagine LIVING within such a beautiful home, surrounded by such luxurious things - it's amazing! :queen:

I don’t know what I love more – men clothes, women clothes or the rules of behavior!
Today, I was sitting alone and one seat next to me was empty. I was talking with my two (male) friends, we were waiting for our classes, and one of them had asked the other why he won’t sit. He said how he won’t sit until I invite him! Nothing great but it really made my day, it reminded me on some old times. :rainbow:

I like this white dress but I am not sure it is an original.
