Queen Elizabeth and her two daughters have brief visits to Norman Hartnell’s atelier, but the major story is about the women who made the gown. It’s a warm and charming novel, many details of which ring quite true.
I thought it was a good read, and I wouldn't say The Gown is corny at all. Parts of it are agonizingly sad.

It's more of a "royal background" book, but it does give a good glimpse of Hartnell and an even bigger and detailed one at couture manufacture, especially for royals.
