Embroidery on Kate Middleton’s Wedding Dress

The expert stitchers at Britain’s Royal School of Needlework created the lace for the dress.  The lace design and process was influenced by traditional Carrickmacross lace.  Carol Jacobs passed along this link to an article in a London newspaper about the project:

And the School’s own press release is posted here:

So nice to see recognition of the exquisite handwork that went into the dress.
