Menuet


Standing gracefully, this 18th Century court lady is waiting for a... menuet!

She wears a red silk, pannier gown embellished with ribbons, which is a personal interpretation of the Watteau dresses very popular at this era. Her jewelry and her feather tiara are made from antique jewelry and buttons and she hides, under her skirt, delicate dancing shoes!
