Queen Elizabeth’s Wardrobe: Behind the Scenes!

Hi Friends,

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!
