Dress Milady de Winter
This magnificent dress in baroque style of the mid-17th Century stands out with its large lace collar that evokes tips of a royal crown. The sleeve endings and the neckline are lined with the same lace. The wide hips are formed by hip pillows that are tied at the waist under the dress. The velvet skirt hides a white petticoat made of pure cotton, which can be seen in the photo with rolled skirt.
The snow-white collar continues in harmony in a triangle of white netting ornate with floral lace and fake pearls. The original decoration of the dress is crowned by a white flowers sprout that is sewn from the waist down to the floor on the skirt. The nobility of the dress accentuate the puffed sleeves with cutouts of shiny satin.
The dress closes with metal hooks (at waist and at neck). The dress has laced back so that it can be easily adapted to the individual body size. Even the lace collar is buttoned back with a small white button.
