The robe 'a la Francaise of the 1750's provided inspiration for the development of a two-piece dress of silk doupioni. The elaborately decorated stomachers of the Pompadour-era were envisioned as a smocked center front bodice panel for a formal dress. The full-hipped pannier silhouette was modified and the length updated. Costume history texts were consulted during the research and pattern design processes. A major objective of this project was to use my design work as a teaching tool to demonstrate historical design inspiration to costume history and apparel design students.
