Marie Antionette's Gown

This dress is making quite the rounds on the costumer blogs around the globe. It's truly amazing! One of the few dresses that Marie Antoinette owned, and wore, that survived the Revolution. It was altered during the Victorian era, but it is still an amazing and rare example of 18th century French Court . It's currently on exhibit at the Royal Ontario Museum for a very short time. Thankfully, the internet has given us the tools to preserve the photos and share them. So here you go :-) Enjoy and God Bless!

Love Lauren

I'd love to get a close look at that designwork on the skirts.
