{Royal Christening Gown Designer Revealed}

23 October 2013
Janet Sutherland of Falkirk, Scotland ("embroiderer to Queen Victoria") created the original royal Christening gown in 1841 for the Windsor family. Prince George, however, wore a replica of the now fragile ritual costume created by the current Queen's couturier, Angela Kelly. Read the entire interesting story from the Telegraph.
