Now we only have to identify that white one with the big poufy sleeves... (out of the little collage you made, I mean. There's still quite a few more pieces left to find pictures of!)
Which one? The one between the jewels and the black velvet dress?? ohhh!! if this is the one you're talking about there's no problem, is the replica of the famous sparkling tulle gown that she used on her famous Winterhalter's official portrait  This!! You can see that the portrait is placed in front of the dress! Although I think that it isn't as beautiful as the original one  :(

know I have a picture (actually engraving) of Sissi's wedding gown that looks remarkably like the replica. It's in a book though. I'll see if it's the one the replica is based on and scan it.
It must be one that I don't have, please post it!!  ;) I really wanna see it!!

Not sure if this is the same replica of the Hungarian coronation gown as the one posted before, but it's a different view:
There are many different views of the same dress, here I have one that shows its back. Sorry for the size, there isn't a bigger one available  :'(

Oh, I love the veil! Really quite a pity the photo isn't bigger!
I'll scan the picture as soon as I get a chance, probably later today. And, no, I did not mean the one in between the jewels and the black velvet, but the one right below that one, with the laced bodice and green and red embroidery.

OK, here is the dress:

It looks pretty similar to the replica!
(sorry for the strip at the bottom and the light color quality. It looked better in my book!)

Here are some press fotos of the opening of the exhibition at the Wagenburg in Vienna where you can see a few of the dresses that are shown there and a few carriages:

Found this hungarian site full of photos about Empress Sissi's gowns, many of them have been posted before (except the black one from her famous photoshot) but here you can see more details of the clothes and their trims! Plus at last the patterns of one of the dresses (I think that is of the famous coronation gown, if I'm not wrong)

This site includes many photos of things that belonged or are related to the Empress (like a shoe or a silver fan)...
Posted this time ago, but now without the watermark for seeing much better the details

From a Russian site of the Beau Rivage hotel, the gloves of the Empress with a list in French with names (the Empress first)
