Royal Weddings: Grace Kelly & HSH Prince Rainier Of Monaco
First, Grace put on the bodice layer: the bodice was attached to an under-bodice, a ruffled skirt support (forming the unique bell shape of the skirt) and a slip. Then came the skirt, which itself included 3 attached petticoats underneath the faille exterior: one for foundation, one ruffled for volume, and the top petticoat for smoothing. A separate pleated taffeta cummerbund fused the top and skirt together, and finally a lace train insert was added in to the back.
