|lace invading my sketchbooks|
I've been having my own little romance with lace for a while now, so I was thrilled when Kate emerged; every inch the princess, in her beautiful McQueen gown. Sumptous folds of satin, a sweetheart neckline and a covering of lace. Somehow she looked modest, but still showed off her fabulous figure. My favourite details were the satin gathers on the back and the tiny pearl buttons at her wrists, which were echoed on Pippa's dress. I guess veils will be big news too now; a return to the traditional, but with none of the 80's flounce. Goodbye tulle!
