Duchess Kate: wedding dress by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen

The ivory satin bodice was padded slightly at the hips and narrowed at the waist, and was inspired by the Victorian tradition of corsetry that is a particular Alexander McQueen hallmark. The bodice incorporated floral motifs cut from machine-made lace, which were then appliquéd on to silk net (tulle) by workers from the Royal School of Needlework, based at Hampton Court Palace. On the back were 58 buttons of gazar and organza, which fasten by means of rouleau loops. The skirt, underskirt trim and bridal train (which measured 270 cm — 110in) also incorporated lace appliquéd in a similar manner. The main body of the dress was made in ivory and white satin gazar, using UK fabrics which had been specially sourced by Sarah Burton, with a long, full skirt designed to echo an opening flower, with soft pleats which unfolded to the floor, forming a Victorian-style semi-bustle at the back, and finishing in a short train measuring just under three metres in length. To partially fulfill the ‘something blue’ portion of the British wedding tradition, a blue ribbon was sewn inside the dress. The design for the bodice of the dress featuring lace in the style of the 19th Century was the ‘something old’ (Wikipedia).

Kate Middleton’s wedding dress was fabulous. I loved everything from the lace, the ivory satin, the embroidery, the elegant and delicate bow at the back, the perfect pleats of the skirt to the tiny buttons at the back. It was perfection.

– The wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton took place on 29th April 2011 at Westminster Abbey, London.
