"Cloth-of-silver" (silk bobbinet embroidered with heavy silver lamé) wedding dress with white silk satin lining and silver metallic-thread embroidery, English, c. 1816.
Made by “Mrs. Triaud of Bolton Street” and worn by Princess Charlotte for her wedding to Prince Leopold. The dress apparently required 500 hours of detailed hand-stitching in ultra-fine, mono-filament silk threads, “almost invisible to the naked eye.”
