GEORGIANA is an 18th-century Chemise à la Reine. This is the historical costume the Queen Marie Antoinette wore in the portrait Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun made of her in 1783. This historical garment was very fashionable in the 1780s.
This 18th-century chemise à la reine is made out of beautiful white soft cotton lawn, for an accurate look. The sash is made with a long and very large ribbon of coral cotton. The span of the skirt is huge (6 m). The bodice of the gown is lined with cotton.

How to dress

The dress is to be put on by the head. Then you can easily adjust with ties, both at the waist and at the neckline.
To give this historical gown its full and gorgeous volume, it is better to wear it over a quilted petticoat or bum pad, just like this one:
In the presentation  photos, the gown is worn over a bum pad which adds volume to the hips  and emphases the thinness of the waist.

 Before starting, make sure you know how to get your body measurements.
