Striped Robe a l'Anglaise

I was lucky enough to be invited to a wonderful Scarlet Pimpernel Dinner hosted by the amazing Jenny La Fleur. I wanted a new dress for the occasion so I took the opportunity to use some sumptuous raspberry and pink striped silk taffeta that I bought on sale a couple of years ago as well as white duchesse silk satin to make an early 1790s Robe a l'Anglaise. It was the most delicious fabric combination!

For details of my construction process, click here! (Coming Soon!)

After the Pimpernel Dinner I took my dress out to my alma mater, UNC Chapel Hill, and photographed it at the beautiful historic Forest Theatre. Scroll down for a few photos from the Pimpernel Dinner and my UNC photo shoot!

Below are a few photos from the Pimpernel Dinner! Many thanks to Jenny Rose for a beautiful event!!
