And the last one



Of course, it has to be her wedding gown. Very different from the later years, but just as beautiful. A white silk skirt, with two rows of wide lace ruffles. There are 6 panels, trimmed out with a smaller lace that drapes around the waist.
  Her bodice is trimmed out with a wide lace and pearl trim, forming a collar at the neckline. It also trims  the sleeves. Beneath the bodice is a fine lace blouse, with full sleeves. Her veil is sewn at the back of a tiny silk cap, that is decorated with the same lace as on her bodice. The tulle veil is strewn with pearls and draps to the bottom of her skirt and a little beyound. She carries a bouquet of blue and white flowers, and is tied with love knot streamers. Old fashion to our eyes, but beautiful, Charlotte will be the center of attention on her wedding day.
