This exquisite 18th century style doll is inspired by the fashion dolls of Rose Bertin, the French dressmaker and milliner to Marie-Antoinette.These dolls called Pandores – were used to display the latest fashions before the advent of fashion magazines, and were created and given as gifts throughout the court of Europe in order to show new styles of fashion.

Our character La Rococo is a real rags-to-riches story, as was Rose, just waiting to be brought to life. Inside this kit you’ll find everything you need to cut out and stitch together Rococo and her influential wardrobe, proving that with a needle and thread you really can achieve anything!

Be inspired by Rose and sew together your very own Pandores. Made from 100% cotton, she has crafted her fortunes with the needle. Born to poor parents, Rococo used her talents and imagination to rise from milliner’s apprentice to chief dressmaker and trend-setter at the court of the Queen. Called “the Minster of Fashion”, she’s the most influential figure at Versailles, and her couture creations have brought about both sartorial and social change. It was Rose’s enormous dresses and wigs that took women from meek to magnificent society events – for even the most dismissive of men cannot ignore a woman who takes up three times as much space as him!

La Rococo comes with all you need to create her iconic 18th century gown, shoes, pompadour hair, stockings and wide pannier! Rococo is a mini couture doll to be cherished for decades.
