Apart from the occasional English hat, I pretty much love everything Kate Middleton wears. When I saw the dress she wore to plant a tree in Canada this year, I had two thoughts: “wow, I love that back” and “WOW, I bet I can make a dress much like this.” My aunt was getting married some months after that, so I thought I’d have enough time to try and pull it off. I started from scratch, by making the pattern. My sewing instructor was of GREAT help as I had never sewn a collar before (actually, this is the second dress I’ve ever made). The gorgeous pink fabric was a gift from my mom. The whole dress cost me about US$0.60 for the zipper – and that was it. I may not look as good as Kate, but I am happy with the dress and I can say I had one of the most original outfits in that party (second only to a lady who was wearing white pants, a weird white lace top with huge shoulder pads and an incredible amount of pearls).
