Ladies 1880s Polonaise & Walking Skirt: Day, Tea or Evening Dress

Item Last Updated: Tuesday, 20-Sep-2016 03:17:27 EDT

1880s Day / Evening Polonaise and Walking Skirt, 19th Century (1800s) Ladies Skirts, Blouses and Dresses
    This is a very beautiful dress that can be worn by most.

    The top is a long bodice as you can tell. It can be lined or unlined depending upon material used. There is a tucked point on each side and a the long hanging section in back gathers due to the tucks on the side. The sleeves are 3/4 long sleeves with ruffles. The bodice / top around the neck can be filled with material for a high neck or cut out for an evening look or a blouse/dickie (under blouse/dickie sold separately) could be used to change it back and forth (open and covered). Buttons up the front. Ruffles, fringe or lace outline the bodice edge. The under skirt is rows (10 to 11) of ruffles, as shown. It is not boned.

    Suggestions: A quarter moon bustle is normally not required nor suggested. A very stiff slip to make the skirt stand out and/or a 2 bone hoop. Suggest in material, (bodice or skirt) one being print and the other one being solid.

    Material (cotton: print and solid okay), color, neck cut. The addition for a gathered under slip, or hoop.

    Price for this dress starts at $459.25 for brocade special occasion or light weight drapery material. It can also be made from silk or other more expensive custom fabrics for addition cost. The dress, shown at the above, is the prototype with heavy brocade drapery material, unlined, square neckline bodice (under blouse sold separately), with front button closure. The skirt is of a cotton lining with a woven fabric for the ruffles, hook closure and placket is in center back. Embellishments are of skirt ruffles, black fringe, black buttons, black ribbon bows, and an under-sleeve ruffle made of black lace and fabric. With the heavy drapery it sells for about $940.00 and weighs about 10 pounds.

    Note: The Polonaise is a coat-like dress, originally worn by Polish women and was extremely popular in the 1770s and 1780s in Western Europe and North America. It consisted of a fitted bodice with a full skirt, draped in front from the waist and caught up on either side at the back, so that it fell in three large loops. This fashion was derived from the Polish Milk-maids, who would tuck their skirts into the waistband or tie up their skirt tails, in order to keep the hems out of the mud and mire. This Polonaise style dress came back in fashion during the Victorian Era, giving it a more formal look, adding embellishments to the tunic bodice and walking skirt. Fabrics used were light weight linen, cottons, muslin, broadcloth or batiste.
