This is a stiff, angular, ill-proportioned adaptation of the previous fashion. The farthingale no longer dips gracefully to the stomacher point but is set square to a higher waistline. The attire frequently gives the impression of being taut, a size too small for the wearer. In the gown, the body parts follow the shape of the corset. The low-curved, deep neckline frequently exposes the breasts, partly covered, though not always, by a piece of semi-transparent material. A standing collar of lace, wired and stiffened, frames the head. The sleeves, accompanied by the epaulette and the hanging open sleeve, are similar in cut to the men’s model and terminate in single or double cuffs. The skirts, less flared than in the previous fashion, are open down the centre front and fastened at intervals with rosettes and brooches. The pleated frounce, made of the same materials as the skirts, is frequently undecorated and cut separately. To create the farthingale I suggest you carefully examine period reproductions (such as those shown among the images), and then try to reproduce the same cage shape, using flexible iron strips lined with heavy fabric.
