Once upon a time
Queen Marie-Antoinette of France organizes a beautiful afternoon tea in the gardens of the Chateau of Rambouillet.
Her best friend the Marquise of Jouy is wearing a pretty dress made of a fresh print representing gallant parties and romantic landscapes.
Her sleeves and collar are made of English embroidery.
