Though this departs from my 18th century focus, I was excited to learn that the lace from Catherine Duchess of Cambridge's wedding gown was handmade by the Royal Needlework School at Hampton Court. Two great articles are on the BBC News website, one about the Carrickmacross lace and the other deconstructing the gown's details.
I don't think they hand made the lace, it sounds like they used a range of laces and cut out motifs to applique together, which is not the same thing. A bit of a pity.ReplyDelete
