1920s ROBE DE STYLE  

This reproduction robe de style was constructed from an original 1920s Butterick pattern from my collection, with details modeled after two robes de style in the University of Georgia Historic Clothing & Textile Collection.  I dyed cotton organdy to get the colors that I needed and used vintage millinery stamens for the flowers.
