My last piece of documentation for my future spotted chemise dress!
Portrait of a Woman (miniature) by Marie Louis Sicard, 1789
Not a chemise dress, but don’t you just adore that pink spotted fabric!
Baroness de Chalvet-Souville by Francois-Andre Vincent, 1793
This is my main documentation for a white-on-white polka dot chemise dress; however, dotted chemise a la reines don’t seem to be extremely rare! The Germans especially appear to have an affinity for them, which I will post.
Teresa Cristina of the Two Sicilies, Empress of Brazil, ca. 1846
“Leaders of Society,” H.R.H Princess Mary Adelaide, Duchess of Teck (1877)
Empress Anna Ivanovna, 1730
