Thanks to a very talented seamstress I now have the Czarina gowns that I missed out from Franklin Mint . These were copied from the actual gowns just made better. The first one is a replica of a gown the Czarina actually wore in a portrait wih the Czar
This next gown is based on a portrait of Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna.
The Franklin Mint made it to be worn by thier Alexandra Doll .
I think they had the two Empress’s mixed up when looking for gowns to make for Alexandra
As far as I can find
Empress Maria is the only one who wore a red velvet gown.
Thank you Alana for making these for me. They are are just beautiful!
