Fuchsia Masquerade Mantua

Name: Fuchsia Masquerade Mantua

Date: 2007-2008


What: Mantua

When: 1700-1710

Fabric: Linen

Pattern: My own based on the pattern in Norah Waugh’s “The Cut of Women’s Clothes: 1600-1930”


 This costume within a costume is a mantua from the very early 1700s. The gown is meant to emulate the colors of the fuchsia flower with a red gown, purple petticoat, and purple and white accents. The look is complete with a matching masquerade mask decorated with flower petals.
