Another fine example is the dress worn by Sophia Magdalena of Denmark when she married the future King Gustav III of Sweden on the 4th of November 1766. The dress isn’t quite so ethereal and fairy princess like as that worn by her sister-in-law Hedwig but then she married in November so an altogether more sturdy and less diaphanous dress was probably determined upon. This dress was also made in Paris.

Wedding gown of Sofia Magdalena, 1766 (Fripperies and Fobs: Archive) Sofia Magdalena was the Queen Consort of the King of Sweden. This had to be ungodly uncomfortable to wear.

1766 Wedding gown of Sofia Magdalena. Queen of Sweden. Her marriage was not consummated until nine years after the wedding. (That's remind me of Marie Antoinette's marriage, which I also think took a few years to be consummated.

This is a very large pannier Panniers are the stiff cage like contraption that women wore under their dresses to exaggerate the hip area.

Panniers for Court Dress It gives me an idea that I can make garments in many shapes by using panniers to support them.

Paniers were a version of the hoopskirt that was largely exaggerated in the hips and flat in both the front and back. It had strips of fabric making the wood or boning structure collapsable.

OMG - this explains the massive doorways back then
