I think it's odd that the museum describes this dress as having belonged to Marie Antoinette when there is no definitive proof that it actually did.

Thank you for this peek into the history of fashion and its preservation. I'm curious to know in what way the dress has been altered. What would it have looked like when Marie Antoinette wore it?
