|Sisi by an Unknown Artist, 1857|
I choose a golden embroidered cranberry silk for the skirt and dark green velvet for the bodice after an Unknow painter's portrait. Originally it was a pale pink skirt, but later on the painter preferred to change it to red, so it seemed that she wore the colours of Hungary. As an emigrant, I liked the idea, I felt closer my home with same colours of our flag, so I decided to make a reproduction from this painting.
|My choice of fabrics, I think that was the most costy dress so far I did, but it worth to save all penny|

I couldn't take apart in all dance, I struggled with some personal life issues, so I don't have as much of pictures as it would show all the glory of this event, but I really would like to leave a footstep in my blog about this event it truly deserves. I hope you will enjoy this few pics as well.
|Still fun how the modern world meets with a sentimental past :)|
|Some gossips going on the court! :)|
|Moniee did a stunning job again!|
|Countess Majláth's court gown, when I saw Moniee's work, this dress came in my head first.|
