Post subject:  Titles for those who cobbled her shoes, mended her clothes

Hello,

I've been looking but have not been able to find the post for the person who actually:

1. Mended Marie's clothes (not originated or dressed them, but mended them when they tore or wore slightly)

2. Mended her shoes.

Would the maker of the shoe or dress take these items back? Or was there someone at versailles who handled these things.

Also, I've seen mention of a tailor ordinaire, in reference to creating uniforms for soldiers. Would the Tailor ordinaire do the Queen's clothes? And was this person someone who worked out of Versailles or a Rose Bertin type who had a business elsewhere.

Thanks for all your help,

Louisette
