Above: I posted this dress pattern on March 22nd. Besides Vogue Patterns, I was first to press this dress onto the internet, and I did it more than one month before the royal wedding. ©M-J de Mesterton

Two times earlier this year I posted my opinion about bridal gowns or wedding dresses*. I said that women of high station wear long sleeves and high necklines. I was vindicated this morning, as the new bride of Prince William wore a very tasteful dress with traditional lace long-sleeves, high neck, full skirt and an actual waistline. I’m very pleased to see my prediction borne out in such a lovely way by an elegant, dignified bride. I had even posted a pattern of an almost identical dress to the one Princess Catherine wore, on March 22nd.
The Princess’ choice of demurely pendulous earrings and no necklace was perfect.
Let us hope that women of all ages eschew the strapless, sleeveless gowns they have been sporting of late (which resemble nothing so much as swimsuits with trains), and take a cue on timeless, classic style from a Princess.

Prospective Brides: Something to Consider

Why not eschew the modern strapless evening dresses/corsets  with long trains that are now standard in the wedding business and adopt a classic, elegant, dignified style for your bridal gown? Following the crowd is not wise. That which is in fashion right now may make one cringe in the future. Brides of refinement and good breeding, women of high station in life have traditionally worn bridal gowns with long sleeves and elegant, high collars. Here is Julie Andrews as Maria von Trapp in the Sound of Music, wearing a gorgeous wedding dress that looks right for any decade:
Note that this elegant wedding dress has a figure-flattering shape while bearing none of the tacky, complicated embellishments that often find their way onto the most important garb of a woman’s life. If it is now impossible to locate a ready-made bridal gown of dignity and taste, there are patterns available from which one may be made.
