Dressing Table Dressy

This is another outfit I made last semester! 
The pink dress is shibori dyed silk and the robe is silk organza with embroidery details:
I made it for my "Art and Artifact" class, where we went to the Edsel and Eleanor Ford house and got to choose anything we wanted as inspiration for our piece.  I picked this 17th century French dressing table:

This table is so beautiful!  The top opens up where there's a mirror and compartments hold powder for wigs.  

This table comes from the time of Marie Antoinette, who was was an inspiration for many of my pieces last semester.
