For sale - 18th century robe a l'anglaise

Everyone everyone! I'm selling this 18th century robe a l'anglaise I made some years ago.

The fabric is red and white striped cotton blend and the robe is entirely handsewn. The bodice is lined with cotton (pink in the bodice, white in the sleeves). The back is cut in en fourreau style.

The robe has been stored in a pet free, non-smoking home. I have worn it once at an indoors event, but it is like new, there is no stretching, stains or smell. I have since fixed the trimmings and added bones on the centre front edges.

The robe closes at centre front with hooks and eyes. It is trimmed at the cuffs and neckline with pleated strips of the robe fabric (both edges of the trimming strips are handrolled).

The hem can be worn straight or tied up in polonaise style. There are ties on the inside to lift the hem up.

Please note that I'm only selling the robe, NOT the petticoat or any other accessories visible in the photos below!
