Black & Red Rococo Dress

Updated: Dec 29, 2020

This dress is inspired by 18th century Rococo dress. I used 3 yards of black stretch satin and 3 yards of red stretch satin both purchased from Joann Fabric.

First I started off with putting on the pannier hoop onto my dress form. After that I sewed together one yard each of the red and black satin. I draped the front and back pieces by pleating the fabric to form the pannier shape. Once I draped the skirt I hand sewed the pleats in place.

After hand sewing the pleats, I then cutout the bodice and sleeves out of the red and black stretch satin.

I sewed together the bodice, then sleeves and a attached the sleeve to the bodice.

Upon completetion of the bodice, I attached to skirt, finished the seams, and hemmed the skirt.
