The Lost Dress of Elizabeth 1: Hampton Court Palace

It has been painstakingly conserved and will now form the focal point of a new exhibition at Hampton Court Palace ‘The Lost Dress of Elizabeth 1′, opening on 12th October. The Royal School of Needlework has partnered with the Palace to offer three unique and exclusive events to view the exhibition with the Curator and stitch beautiful motifs inspired by the Cloth (spaces are limited).
