Fashion icon Grace Kelly wore this Helen Rose gown on her April 19, 1956 wedding to Prince Rainier of Monaco. Three dozen seamstresses worked on the gown for six weeks, resulting in a 125 year old rose-point lace, silk taffeta gown costing over $7200. Princess Grace then donated the gown to the Philadelphia Museum of Art where it is still showcased today.

You too can wear the same regal design as Grace Kelly through VoguePatterns, which can provide you with the dimensions and patterns needed for a custom fit.

Thanks Susan for sending this to me!
