Evening/Afternoon Ensemble, With Afternoon Bodice, Texier St. Engley: ca. 1875, French, silk. "An air of coquettishness and youthful presence inform this set of French dress coordinates. The colorful and spritely decorative details lend a sense of whimsy. The choice of fabric and the inclusion of alternate bodices made this ensemble appropriate for both late day and evening wear."

Robe à la Française "Sack-back gown", c.1750-1760, France, Dress: liseré satin, grey and green silk. Lining: striped taffeta, green and violet silk. Green silk chenille appliqués. "This robe à la française is a copybook illustration of the Rococo aesthetic, which saw beauty as necessarily dynamic: the undulation of the flowers on the fabric and the silk chenille appliqués on the bodice were harmoniously matched by the swaying of the panniers as the wearer moved about."
