The diary of an eighteenth century French noblewoman, and information relating to her world.
This is probably one of my favorite extant gowns. Such amazing embroidery and motifs.xox
Mine too, it's pretty spectacular!
That is one of my favorite historical styles - not overly ornate and frou-frou and HUGE!
I love the juxtaposition of the simple silhouette, with the detailed designs. It's the perfect sort of thing for theater costuming too.
