Two evening dresses and an evening cloak probably worn by Empress Maria Feodorovna

Posted to the Alexander Palace Time Machine Discussion Forum by kmerov on 29 November 2009.

This selection shows how Maria Feodorovna liked white dresses with substantial trimming, but always showed good taste. The right dress uses spangled muslin to cover a petticoat with a pleated edge. The left dress is from the 1900s, and I believe the right dress is from the later 1890s due to the waistlines of both dresses.
