I hope you are doing well. I am completely overwhelmed by your sweet comments on my Learn to Machine Quilt giveaway post. You ladies are simply awesome!
Today’s post is also a behind-the-scenes post, except this time, it’s about Queen Elizabeth’s wardrobe. The Queen’s personal dresser Angela Kelly has written a book called “Dressing the Queen”, and in the book she reveals a bit of what goes on behind the scenes. You can read about the fascinating tidbits here. I hope the publisher releases a US edition of the book in due time.
What really caught my attention was the sewing machine that is on the background of the following photo. I think it’s quite safe to assume that that machine is royally employed to sew up the Queen’s dresses and gowns. Some of you might even have that same machine — it’s a Bernina machine, I think an Artista 730 to be exact? What do you Bernina girls think about that? I thought that was pretty cool.
Some of you know that I absolutely despise mending. I joke with my husband that my machine does not have a mending function. But I would gladly work as a mending maid in the Queen’s Sartorial Command Center, wouldn’t you?
Thanks for stopping by. Come back tomorrow to see the feathery banner I made for a newly released book. Till tomorrow then, take care!
