The Babydoll Toile Parliament Dress

Selkie

 Going full Rococo style in public isn’t exactly normalized these days, so we find things close to it... The parliament dress in this dreamy toile print is truly fit for a day picnicing in estate gardens, or hanging a canopy and eating grapes in bed. A dress for dangerous liaisons.

 The word “toile” comes from the French word for linen cloth. The word is shortened from the full name toile de Jouy, which means linen or cloth from the town of Jouy-en-Josas, in the suburbs of Paris. Toile de Jouy was a specific type of linen printed with romantic, pastoral patterns in a single color—usually black, blue, or red—on an unbleached fabric. To spin it and print it on organza felt modern and a touch more femme.

Although the word toile means fabric, the word toile has evolved to also refer to the original design aesthetic of the fabric. Toile designs are popular for non-fabric items like wallpaper and fine china.

Toile also refers to a test garment pattern makers and designers use to perfect a new design.
