I DO...A Royal Wedding Gown

I attended the Princess Diana expo at Sotheby's Paris today.
Here is another piece of history from this incredible collection.

The final calico toile for the royal wedding gown, which was worn by Princess Diana, 1981, estimate £8000-12,000, labelled, the calico gown being an exact rendition of the gown later made in silk, with flounce to neck, central bow, flounced cuffs, trained skirt; together with two silk bodice toiles; pair of calico sleeve toiles; a single slimmer alternative sleeve toile; three further calico/muslin bodice toiles in sections; complete with the original brown paper pattern used for making the royal wedding gown; and a letter of authenticity signed by Elizabeth Emanuel.
