06Jun Lace Garters… You Can Have Princess Diana’s Lace!


Her children are grown up and having children of their own, but no-one will forget the impact her wedding had on the Nation or Princess Diana’s amazing fairytale dress…

 

The dress was designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel and took Nina Missetzis three months to make and on the last day she sewed in a small blue bow. The train was an amazing twenty five yards long! The dress was stitched with 10,000 pearls and sequins, 40 meters of silk fabric was hand woven and stitched with gold thread. The petticoat was made from 100 meters of tulle because they wanted the dress to have a soft look rather than sway with a hoop. Elizabeth Emanuel embroidered on some of the lace and stitched a tiny diamond horseshoe inside for luck. The antique lace was Queen Mary’s lace and was complimented by tulle lace from a wonderful old company in Nottingham…

 

 

 

It was estimated that one billion people watched the royal wedding between Diana and prince Charles
