Unlabelled but made by a professional hand, whoever made it had a fabulous appreciation of historical costume and it's quite possible this dress was made for a Hollywood film - it was purchased in LA. The fabric may be much earlier than when the dress was made - we believe in the 1930s. The zip at the back has been added either at the point the dress was made, or a bit later. We have completely restored and cleaned this dress taking great care to address any cotton breaks and she is now in superb condition with no flaws of any note. She will fit size UK 6-8 or US 2 and could be worn as a statement dress for an event or displayed.
Design Notes: The robe à la polonaise or polonaise became fashionable during the 1770s and had some or all of the following design elements; a cutaway or layer dress; a draped and swagged overskirt which was worn over an underskirt or petticoat and usually there were several layers of each.
