1740 by Tadarida 1740 by Tadarida
Dresses from 1740s are what we call rococo fashion. By 1745 skirts reach their ultimate width. It can be more than arm-span of the wearer.

Contouche evolves into robe Ó la franšaise, with opening in front that shows decorated bodice and jupe. Back is pleated ([link])

Hairdos remain simple and powdered. Make up is obligatory for every lady over 13 years old. Women paint their faces and cleavage with pale complexion, they use listick, big amounts of rouge, mouches in shape of stars, hearts and cupids, and they paint their veins blue. Make-up is meant to look artificial.

This is really nice. The pink reminds me of an outfit Madame Pompador wore once. I especially like the detail on the Blue. I always have trouble when drawing fabric designs. i have to cut a swatch and put it next to the design. Good job.
