I am thrilled to report that the research that I have been working on with Brooke Welborn for years is finally available! Dress, the journal of the Costume Society of America, has just come out with our article on the robe à la polonaise.
I have written up a summary of our findings as promised:
If you’d like to read a full copy of the article, you can get it one of two ways (if you’re not already a subscriber to Dress):
1. Find a local library with a print copy of, or electronic access to, the journal Dress. WorldCat provides a list of libraries who subscribe to the journal.
2. Alternately, you can purchase a PDF of the article from Ingenta Connect.
I’m super proud, and hope you find the information useful!
