The Queens' Wedding Dress

Today there is a wonderful article in the London ( UK) Telegraph about a then 18 year old Betty Foster, a seamstress in the workrooms of the designer Norman Hartnell and her recollections of working on the wedding dress of Queen Elizabeth 11 of England. This year the Queen celebrates her 60th wedding anniversary and the dress has been on display in a special exhibit open to the public at Buckingham Palace. The story is quite delightful.

Here's the link to the article:

There is also an online site about the collection and pictures via this link:
