Queen Maud bought clothes from a number of accomplished dressmakers whose names have been eclipsed by the great couturiers in fashion history. Her wardrobe allows their reputations to be revived and their creations to be celebrated. This is an example of superb cut and decoration by the London dressmaker, Blancquaert. Intricate pin-tucking in the shape of leaves decorates the bodice and upper sleeves.
