Marie's Muslin Style Dress

Diane Kryger wears this muslin gown in "Farewell my Queen". The dress is supposed to be one of Marie's simple muslin dresses that she used to wear at Petit Trianon. This one is different though. The fabric is heavier than muslin and not as transparent. It looks more like silk embroidered with flowery motifs. The sleeves are cut in the same way as the original dresses the ribbon is just a little higher up the arm than usually. The sash is a warm orange which is very unlike Marie's style (I do not remember any portrait of her with anything orange in it). The bodice is pleaded and tied with the same sort of ribbon that has been used for the arm.
