Jenny Packham's brand manager confirmed to Vanity Fair that the powder-blue polka-dotted dress Kate Middleton wore for her first post-baby photo-op was a custom design. The company will not be duplicating it for retail.
The white, super-fine merino knit shawl that Kate and Will wrapped around little George and instantly transformed into the Official Royal Baby Swaddling Blanket, on the other hand, can be yours for £45.00.
The blanket is by G.H. Hurt and Company, a British knitwear brand, and it is still available — though the company warns on its Web site that "due to a well publicised event," they are experiencing production delays. Another blanket, which George was wrapped in for the car ride back to the palace, has already sold out.
