Duchess Kate

4:30 AM 1 Comments A+ a-

It's no secret I'm a huge Kate Middleton fan and since I'm still basking in the post wedding glow (no, I'm not over it yet!), I've been googling pictures of the Duchesses' much talked about sense of style. If I were a good blogger I would find and post patterns to match all of these outfits, but I'm not a good blogger, so I'm just posting gratuitous pictures of gorgeous Duchess Catherine of Cambridge...

I love the classic, simplicity of her style. So lovely! In the spirit of inspiration, I'm going to try to knock off one of her dresses, (maybe the most famous other than the wedding dress) the gorgeous Issa dress she wore for the engagement announcement.

It's also a inspired by this Monique Lhuillier dress, another on of my favorite style inspirations, from her Pre-Fall 2011 collection...

I love the plunging neckline and the wrap waist, so I'm recreating it with Burda 7697, shortened to Kate Middleton length with a vintage, shiny blue polyester jersey (that photographs badly), which, despite being polyester, is really lovely feeling...
Have a happy weekend!

oooo...I would love to see your knockoff of her Issa dress because it is just stunning! She really does have great style, doesn't she?
