Fit for a Queen…

I discovered these three pictures of a gown that was given as a gift to Queen Victoria around 1850, and is currently in the process of being prepped for display!

In addition to the delicious sheerness, I love the embroidery along the front and bottom of the skirt.  I am surprised that there isn’t a matching design on the bodice, but that’s just me!  Notice the clean, simple lines and the extravagance of the lace along the neckline and the sleeves.  Drooling!!  I also like that you get a real sense of the height and size of Queen Victoria compared to the other women who are adjusting and fixing the gown.   Barely standing at 5′, Queen Victoria was very petite, and I’m sure, quite stunning in this gown!
