This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I’m back again and I come baring another wedding dress! This time I’ve tried to re-create the wedding gown of Kate Middleton, or “Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge” as she is officially known.



The dress was designed by Sarah Burton who is the current head of the Alexander McQueen fashion house. I’m not going to go into too many details about the dress. However, I think it’s worth noting that the dress is so famous that it has its own Wikipedia page full of fascinating facts and tidbits.



I’m not sure if any of you guys and gals have tried to recreate a lace outfit for the sims, but let me tell you….. It’s freaking hard. And as you can see, the whole top half of the gown is covered in lace. I spent what seemed like forever hand tracing patterns off the real dress just to get it to look right.



You must download the mesh by “GlamSims” from “All about style”. Here is the link to the right page. You need to download the dress called “Simple Cream Satin” in order to get the right mesh.



The model in the pic is my own quick attempt at a Kate Middleton sim, although I have no plans to upload her. I just wanted a look-alike to model the dress…. Everything else in the pictures is maxis, from her hair to the benches in the background.
Let me know what you think in the comments, and as always please let me see any pics or movies you use the dress in! Enjoy!

txPrincessShan at Blogspot was the first to create a Kate Middleton wedding dress in May 2011, with a tiara and a veil. But why not have this one too ?

I didn’t say I was the first to make the dress, or that it was even the best one available. I also didn't realize that it was a competition. Your post sounds more like an ad than a comment. However, since you brought it up, I'll link the other version, and then people can compare for themselves.

I don't take requests. :-)

I had another version of this dress in my game before, but this one is far better quality and definitely more realistic. Thank you for uploading this!

I commented on your other gown, Bella's Wedding Dress, that you made. I tried to extract this one too using WinRAR but it says again that the file does not appear to be a valid archive.

So lovely. In my own head this is already a featured creation! I was talking about this dress with a friend just recently, and how it's my favourite wedding dress of all time!

No my comments don't sound like an ad. I download a lot of CC from people having blogs and who never had their creations here at MTS. It has nothing to do with competition. But since it's also today about creditting, etc. (+ drama) I know that txprincessshan might also want to look at other similar creations and let me tell you she's a peaceful person.

BTW I also use some old clothes from MTS to put them on much better meshes. I forget sometimes to link back but I try my best to mention the name of the creator. That'd be sufficient too.

Forgive me if I'm mistaken, but it sounds like you're implying that I used her work? If that is not what you mean, please disregard the following. I absolutely did not use her work in any way, shape or form, and therefore no credit need be given to her. It you don’t believe me, and then by all means please take your suspicions (and proof) to the moderators. Either way, thanks for taking the time to comment, and have a fantastic day!
