I own a shop in Glasgow, Scotland where we teach crafty stuff and we were challenged a couple of months ago to make the Royal Wedding Dress. On the day of the wedding..

*Barney Stinson voice* - "CHALLENGE ACCEPTED"


We got the first glimpse of the dress at 11am along with the rest of the world, my glamorous sewing guru put the finishing touches on the dress just after 6pm. She used six metres of Duchess Satin and 2m of lace.







Whaddya think?

OH. MY. GOODNESS!!!  That is so excellent!  She should be super proud of herself, and you should be pumped at how it all turned out.  That is so amazing!  And so fun.   Cheesy

I am trying to turn all of my non crafty friends and relatives into crafters. It's like a cult. I want everyone to become addicted to my obsessions!

I think you must have the coolest shop ever, and I'm sad it's so far away (I'm in Texas). And the dress is amazing!

This is amazing! My mum kept saying that people would have made replicas by the end of the day, but she was thinking more of big chain's I think. I can't believe it was hand-made within hours! Very well done to the creator. Smiley If I'm ever in Glasgow, I'll be sure to find you!

At the moment it's on display in our window. A local theatre is borrowing it next week for a week-long show, then we're donating it to a local hospice in Glasgow for them to do whatever they want with it to fundraise Smiley


Thanks so much for all the lovely comments!
