Queen Victoria's Tartan Dress Rendering

Description supplied by the film's costume designer Sandy Powell:

Victoria wears this dress in the latter half of the film, after she becomes Queen. At this point, her style has changed to a more grown up, sophisticated look, with richer, darker tones. This dress was inspired from an original dress worn by the actual Victoria. I (Powell) was fortunate enough to be shown examples of her clothing at Kensington Palace. One dress was made from a very fine silk-much nicer fabric than is possible to obtain nowadays-with a dark tartan (plaid) pattern woven into it.
