I would be proud to wear any one of these outfits. But what would the "high fashion" types say? (I think of Michael Kors on Project Runway saying "But it looks home-sewn" or Heidi Klum saying "It's so Mother-of-the-Bride")
My answer would be it is OKAY to use Home Dec fabric for formal wear!
Matchy-matchy is OKAY!
In fact, matching is a fine art!
And accessories! Why do we play it so safe in the US??

I could go on, but I need to get back to my own sewing. What did you think of The Dress? Personally, I thought Kate wore the best dress possible. I love a sleek and simple silhouette and anytime there is lace involved, I'm for it. The bridesmaid was perfection - a modern interpretation of the bride's gown.
I have expressed a little snark (maybe 33%?), it is just my sense of humor. The other 67% of me is darn pleased to see people wearing bright, interesting, fanciful and yes- MATCHING outfits. Love it! It feels like people wore what they wanted. I like the restraint, too. Not so many distracting bosoms and legs on display.
So what about you? What did you think? Isn't fashion fun?!
