Wedding dress - Royal?

This is a picture of a wedding dress a friend made that I took 3 months to decorate with tatting. The same beaded edging is all the way around the dress skirt and train and all around the cathedral length veil. The bodice has appliqued tatted motifs all over it. The fabric of the dress was watermarked silk.

It was made in 1988, modelled by my (then) 16 year old niece, Paula.

Does it remind you, similarly, of a recent royal wedding dress?

The old designs never date do they?

Sorry about the quality of the picture, but there were no digitals in those days! LOL!!!

Hi Linda,

Wow this is a lovely dress and it does look very much like her dress, it is a gorgeous dress with all the tatting on which makes it very special. I did some tatting for my wedding dress 9 years ago. It makes it so special.

Very nice, and just enough tatted lace on it to. It's a keeper for sure....

This is wonderful! I love tatted trim on veils, rare as it is. I can't wait until someone close me gets engaged and I can do that!
