Wedding Wednesday: Queen Mother's Wedding Dress

Today's wedding dress is the Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, better known as the Queen Mother. It was created in the 1920's and was made for a woman who never expected to be queen consort.  History would deal the Lady Elizabeth a different set of cards. It is worn by Catherine Duchess of Cambridge.

The Dress is hand knitted and the decoration is crocheted.  This was one of my experimental patterns and it took me twice to get this one right.  To see how it matches with the original check out the Royal Order of Splendor's link here.

Yarns: Caron Simply Soft, Silvery Crochet Thread, White Embroidery Floss
