29th April 2011

The lace on the bride's dress details a rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock, and was hand-applied by the Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court Palace.

The bridal train measures 2m 70cm, and along with the lace, all other fabrics used in the creation of the dress were sourced from and supplied by British companies.

The lace motifs were pinned, "framed up" and applied with stab stitching every 2mm to 3mm around each lace motif.

Workers washed their hands every 30 minutes to keep the lace and threads pristine, and the needles were renewed every three hours, to keep them sharp and clean.

The dress is a perfect example of the quality and craftsmanship that is available in the UK, I hope I get a chance to see it up close ?

Well done to Sarah Burton and all her little mice at Mcqueen !

Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris

I was completely intrigued by the tender sentiment of the Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris auction catalogue.
I guess it has kind of inspired me to start this blog?
I love the thought of documenting my life, not because it’s important but because it stops me from forgetting about cool or inspiring things I come across?
