Subject: Kate Middleton / Catherine Duchess Cambridge Sew Along Date: 3/20/12 8:14 AM

Is anybody interested in a Sew Along inspired by the clothes worn by Catherine, Duchess Cambridge?

I know there have been several discussions about sewing patterns inspired by her clothes. I think her style is just fabulous and would love to sew something to get her look.

I think that's a terrific idea. Kate has excellent taste, and her wide ranging, updated classic style ranges from sporty casual to businesslike to dressey. There's something for everyone, regardless of age, budget or dress size.

Great idea! I still want to make that bandage dress from last year, but I have been looking for the perfect fabric.

What sort of fabric do you think you will use? What colour?

I love this DvF dress


I think New Look 6049 could be adapted for this look


Obviously I would need a tie belt. It is the back of the dress that is distinctive. It has a V-back and is buttoned with gold buttons. Hopefully I could alter the pattern! I have never altered a pattern before so any advice is greatly appreciated.

Yes, lets do it! I loved the black dress with the a symmetrical opening that was recently mentioned on PR. Does anyone know the recommended pattern number for that one?

I like the green dress she wore for St. Patrick's Day. I've been thinking that I should add a dress like that to my project list...

A little inspiration for this crowd, from the blog What Kate Wore:
