Svenska Nationella Drakten (Swedish court gown)

17 Favourites
This is a Swedish Court gown in regency style, as it looked around 1810. I have as best as I can reproduced it with the right materials, silk and silk velvet(with cotton lining). The grated sleeves are typical for the courtwear that women wore through the years from 1778 to today. I used two paintings as inspiration for my dress that dates to 1811, and 1812, picturing Désirée, Queen consort of Sweden and Norway. More info and pictures can be found here:…

I have already seen this on facebook!
This is soooo amazing!
I love how you recreated the look of the portraits, expecially the little pearl on the neckline! <3 and the sleeves *sigh* Love
