I hate to say “I told you so!” But I told you so! Way back in March, (March 7 GTGG to be exact) I wrote a post proclaiming that Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen would be designing Kate Middleton’s Royal Wedding Dress. Since then – a slew of designer names were mentioned but I stayed true to Sarah,and  had every confidence that her designs would prevail.  Low and behold-beautiful Kate Middleton, now Princess Catherine did indeed wear McQueen as did her sister Pipa – just as I had predicted.

THE dress is made of beautiful white satin gazar. The train is 107 inches long and the  lace appliqués were hand made by the Royal School of Needlework, based at Hampton Count Palace. The lace appliqué  on the bodice and train were  intricately sewn on by hand . The story goes that seamstresses   working on the dress had to wash their hands every 30 minutes to keep the lace pristine. Each and every detail of this iconic dress were overseen by designer Sarah Burton.
