Striped Polonaise

Okay, so this isn’t actually a robe à la polonaise. Want to know why this isn’t a polonaise? Go read all about it in Kendra’s fabulous article! But I’m going to keep calling it a polonaise because that’s what I’ve called since I made it back in 2009. It’s based on a variety of period sources, but also subconsciously influenced by this dress from The Duchess. Oops! I have some yardage left, so I’d love to give this dress a more historically accurate make over someday. Slight inaccuracies aside, this dress is great for frolicking in!
