Royal Wedding *again*

It took me a bit longer to restyle Kate, because I needed supplies - and of course the shops were shut!

I'm pretty pleased with the new version. I've added lace to the front of her skirt and all around the edge of the train, sleeves and bodice of course - given her hair, and a tiara and a much finer veil. Flowers are tiny white beads sewn to a leaf-green crochet base. *phew*

The real challenge was getting the veil/tiara combo to work whether the veil was forward or back, that took much head-scratching!

These are terrific, if I squint a little, I could swear they are Kate and William themselves!

LOL Eva judging by comments I've read I'd need to do Pippa as a rear view! Her dress was stunning though.

So much love for these. I adored non-meerkat Kate's dress when I caught some footage on Friday evening, and meerkat-Kate wears it just as beautifully. :) (And her little bouquet! <3)
