Your Weekend Wow!

Another dress from a period of time I’m just starting to explore. I cannot imagine embroidering silk with metallic thread – the time, the patience, the experience needed to embroider at this level. It is a fabulous piece of workmanship. I do not know  which bride commissioned this dress, nor did I find any detail photos, but she obviously came from a family of tremendous wealth. The train alone must have weighed a ton.
