Royal Wedding

We interrupt Applique Week (because I've been all caught up in Royal wedding mania and haven't prepared enough posts!) to congratulate the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their delightful wedding.

Of course, everyone's been talking about The Dress - surrounded in complete secrecy until its official outing, the simple confection of silk and lace did not disappoint. Comparisons were drawn with the similarly lace-overlaid and wasp-waisted gown worn by Grace Kelly for her 1956 marriage to Prince Rainier of Monaco.

Normal service will hopefully resume tomorrow, although as I'm still working on my next project it looks as though applique "week" may stretch into May!

  1. I may be misremembering, but wasn't the lace *appliqued* onto the skirt on Kate's dress? So it ties in with your theme!

    Loving applique week, btw - yet another thing that's always on The List to try, but haven't gotten around to. Thanks for the inspiration!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
