Catwalk Exhibition at the Rijksmuseum / New Thea Gouverneur Kits

Today I visited the 'Catwalk' Exhibition at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam where I also bought one of the new cross stitch kits that Thea Gouverneur designed especially for this exhibition. The design that I liked best is based on Helena Slicher’s (1737-1776) wedding gown (or mantua), which she supposedly wore at her marriage to Aelbrecht baron van Slingelandt (1732-1801) on 4 September 1759. This amazing wedding gown is two metres wide (!) and beautifully embroidered.
