Fashion Timeline: 1760-1810

Year: ca 1760-1765
Style: Rococo or Georgian
Dress: Robe à la française
Description: A gown style that had a fitted bodice opening to show a stomacher; also called a "sack back" because of the two large double pleats which hung freely at the back from teh shoulders to hem. It was very popular during the 2nd and 3rd quarters of the 18th century. During the last quarter, until the Revolution, it was only for ceremonial court functions that it was worn in its original form (from "Galerie des Modes").


All other artwork (including the Disney stuff) is officially on hold until I've made a dent in this project, which is for my Independent Study in the fall semester. Yes. I'm starting it ahead of time... because I work s-l-o-w.... and I wanna put as much detail as possible into these dresses so they feel "authentic." I'm trying to keep everything as historically accurate as possible! If you see anything that's really "off" (and not because of the deliberate stylization ;P) then please let me know.

For more information about the project, keep an eye on my journal, which I'll be updating soon!

This is officially the most complicated dress I've ever drawn. Ironically, I actually finished it pretty fast... and the pattern was a lot easier to draw than you might imagine-- if you look closely, you can see that all the flowers are squiggly lines :giggle:

I hope you guys enjoy this project :aww: :heart: There's more on the way!

P.S. I know the bows are enormous >__> Don't ask me why I drew them that way...

Ooh, this is really lovely! I love historical dresses, but I can barely draw any becasue it's impossible to find references. :(

There are actually a number of sites that offer reference material, but they can be hard to find. I keep a lengthy list of good reference sites at the bottom of my journal if you're interested.

My goodness, your artwork never fails to amaze and stun me. This is absolutely gorgeous. She's such a pretty, graceful lady (love her pose, almost as she is being playful) and her dress is amazing! I love all the little details. It seems like a dress like this would be fun to wear. I really like how the colours are in sepia tones and the roses looks old-fashioned, which goes perfectly with her outfit. You draw clothing wonderfully. I'm sure I've said this a million times, but you are a big inspiration to me.

Oh yes, by the way, I finally did my 1st Disney fanart. If you have time, please check it out! :)

Sumptuous and gorgeously detailed. Amazing again. Although I do love the colours, you do often tend to work within the same pallette of muted browns, greys, creams and reds, which is fine and they always turn out beautiful, but I do wonder ocasionally what they might look like in other colour schemes (like maybe purple or green or something?). Great job. :)

Thank you :) Yeah, I definitely need to start using some different colors, though I have to use period-accurate colors for this project. So, it'll be a lot of pastels and muted colors. But I do want to work in a green dress somewhere... probably for the 1780s characters...

Oh my gosh, Seitou. This is absolutely amazing! The details are astonishing. I like that the dress is the center of attention, but you managed to still draw and give detail to small things such as her shoe, the fan, hair. I especially love her hands. They have a nice fluid but contrasting look and feel.
