Sorry, this item has sold.


The custom made panniers in my etsy store feature 5 lengthy hoops of steel in double folded casings that shape the panniers.The front and back of the panniers are flat while both sides extend out to 7 to 9 inches. These side pocket panniers are ideal for most any Marie Antoinette dress or gown costume that is the smaller style dresses and gowns. The side pocket panniers rest on the sides of the hip area. The side pocket panniers are mounted on a drawstring. the panniers can be adjusted on the drawstrings to fit any size waist.

The Marie Antoinette side pocket Panniers or side hoops are women's undergarments worn during the eighteenth century. Panniers and side hoops extended the width of the skirts at the side while leaving the front and back flat. This provided a flat panel where boldly scaled woven patterns or rich embroidery could be seen very vividly.The style originated in Spain during the 17th century. By mid-eighteenth century it had been developed into the French robe à la française, which ensured that a woman always presented very dramatic and showstopping. At their most extreme, in the French court of Marie Antoinette, panniers could extend the dresses up to 24 inches at each side. of the waist.

I had art history classes. I became intrigued by the engineering techniques used by the clothing designers of the 17th, 18th,and 19th centuries. I started sewing during childhood. I made custom designs to help support me during my college years. I continue to hold a fascination for the historical clothing periods, while enjoying the creative process.
