Flashback Friday: Swedish Court Dresses

 I always wanted to create a Russian Style Court Dress and when I found this entry on Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor I decided to create one.

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden is wearing one an old Swedish Dress.  The dress is machine knitted in one pice and the sleeves were hand knitted.  I wasn't sure how big to make them, so they were experimental.  Next time I make a court dress I'll make the sleeves bigger.  The train is machine knitted with the crochet edging.  Crown Princess Victoria is also wearing the Connaught Tiara and the Order of Seraphim. 

Yarns used: Red Heart Black, Embroidery Floss DMC 800.
