Thank you everyone for sharing your knowledge.. I am indeed a beginner when it comes to the Romanov and their backgrounds...
Wow.. As in I really adore their gowns.. I could see that most of their dresses are silk and there are different embroideries in them..  8)

Anyways thanks to the people behind the preservation of their memoirs...

P.S. to: Ingrid Alexie, my classmate, thanks for being a tour guide!!! Hahahaha!!

God bless you!! mwah mwah!!  :-*

Tagalog, possibly? Or perhaps Wikang Filipino?     Regards,  AP

Indeed, aleksandr pavlovich, but not Tagalog! It's a dialect, actually. Visaya in particular.

Their 1911 court dresses were made of silver tissue with velvet accents.

As young children, OTMA's summer dresses were made of cambric with colored silk underdresses.

As young women, I suspect their everyday clothes were more likely made of fabrics like cambric, linen, lawn, wool, and so forth, than silk. The tsaritsa dressed her daughters in "simple English styles," though IMO "simple" means something a little different to royalty than it does to the likes of us. ;-)

I believe their dresses for the 1916 formals were satin.

Yes! Nicholas was said to wear "peasant" clothes, but I doubt what he wore was anything like what peasants actually had.

I agree. I think when people say he wore peasant clothes, they really mean the tsar wore traditional Russian styles -- not that he dressed shabbily.

Do those 'peasant dresses' appear in 1916 and in captivity photos, generally, if I may ask? OTMA's hats/caps and their specific dresses.

Not sure. I'm not familiar with Russian peasant women's styles -- just the men's tunics and tall leather boots favored by NII.

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:




Whoa...Their dresses are kinda large huh.. Are there Times when these grand duchesses lose their shape? (Just wondering)  :)  ;D

They didn't lose their shape, TianotsJoeJonas...All the dresses they wore were exactly their shape. I can't remember any picture of the OTMA where I could spot their dresses are just too large for them. : P

I think they may seem "large" only because thereĀ“s no real comparism to a person.....
