1860s Ballgown

I've long loved this painting from the book 'From Queen to Empress'. Maybe someday I'll have to reproduce one or both of these dresses. They're so gorgeous in the painting.

Fabulous hairstyle for the ball, isn't it?

As for my hairstyle for the Remembrance Day ball, I have yet to decide on one! It will definitely incorporate sausage curls though.

  1. That is really gorgeous hair! Who is that? I recognise her, but can't quite put my finger on who it is...

  2. I think that picture may be of Empress "Sissi" of Austria.
