An Olympic Dress for a Queen

I was hoping to do some historical sewing related to the Olympics, but I've been too busy for that. Perhaps for another Olympics. In lieu of that I thought I'd share an interesting dress that Queen Elizabeth wore to the 1976 Montreal Olympics. This silk crepe evening dress has rings embroidered with "silver and iridescent sequins, silver beads and turquoise colored beads." Located at The Royal Collection Trust, the accession number is RCIN 100067.
