I don't know why I read name of woman from Moscow who created OTMA dresses -- Lomova.

Bitaw Tianne, noh?! Gwapo bitaw kaayo ang mga gown ni Tashy!
You're so right, Tianne2x! Tatiana's gowns are indeed beautiful!

Thank you, Nena. I've read her name somewhere but I can't remember.

Thank you Nena for the information. I have read in a site (http://www.geocities.com/grandanor1/thefour1.html) that OTMA knew how to sew. Perhaps they even made dresses for each other or for their own. It was also stated that they made clothes for the soldiers. How sweet...  ;D

Hi Olga Maria!!! That is so kind of you!!!

God bless you all!!!

Yes, that info's right. Alexandra taught them herself. Her best pupil is Tatiana among the four. Lovebug!
But I don't know whether they made dresses for each other or for their own.
Thank you soo much,,,

Yes, IMO, they knew perfectly to sew - they sew different gifts to soldiers during WW1 and to children. I have never heard they sew their dresses completely. Again, I have only heard for woman Lomova, who created OTMA 1914 dresses.

To my knowledge, the girls did not make their own clothing.

This ceremonial Court Dress was made in Olga Bulbenkova's workshop in Russia. It´s of white satin; embroidered with silk.

The Big Pair's 1913 gowns today:



I believe Tatiana's is on the left.

In addition to the info Ally posted, according to Nicholas & Alexandra: The Last Imperial Family of Tsarist Russia, the front panel is of pink velvet with pearl buttons.

Are almost all their gowns pink?

I've never seen a contemporary color photo of the dresses from the 1913 group portrait, but the children's court dresses look pink in many photographs. Here's a couple of the 1910/11 dresses:

Thanks -- I think their dresses can be found at Alexander Palace, from 1910/1.

But they look great in pink. Just imagine if the gowns were green, it wouldn't look nice. Thank you, Sarushka.
