Marie-Antoinette's Dress

Some my find it strange that a man should find a dress worn by Marie-Antoinette interesting. Well I do find it interesting, but not from any prurient interest, indeed far from that. Other than the natural historical interest, this is a relic of a woman I believe is a martyr, and therefore a Saint.

...The dress which is pictured at left is currently located in the "Royal Ontario Museum but will be exhibited at Versailles". A podcast here talks about the dress.
I would like to thank, Catherine Delors for tweeking my interest and for Johanna Öst at 18th century Blog, fashion and Culture from the 1700's.
Thanks you to both of you, and a tip of my royalist beret.
Roi,Foi, Dieu.
