Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress Knockoff Hits Stores

ABC/HAZEL THOMPSON(NEW YORK) -- Kate Middleton's wedding dress made the whole world gasp in awe.  But now, every bride-to-be will be able to buy one just like it.

Minutes after the world got its first glimpse of Middleton's gown, designers were making detailed sketches.

Michelle and Henry Roth are designers who sell exclusively for Kleinfeld Bridal Salon, the largest wedding boutique in the country, located in New York City.  At Kleinfeld, they see more than 15,000 women per year and everyone's looking for that special dress.

Now, Kleinfeld and the Roths are working on what will surely be one of their hottest gowns ever: an inspired replica of that amazing Kate Middletown wedding gown.

The dress is a game-changer, and the Roths are determined to have the perfect couture gown inspired by Middleton's available immediately.

From the very first moment on Friday that Prince William's bride stepped out in her dress -- designed by Sarah Burton for fashion house Alexander McQueen -- the Roths have been working on every detail.

They now have a prototype to fit on a model.

Like detectives, the Roths examined every detail of Middleton's dress -- from the neckline to the sleeves to the pleats in the skirt.  Nothing was overlooked.

They even pulled other dresses to examine the possible components of Middleton's dress.  Then they rushed to Lace Star in New York's Garment District to find the perfect fabric.

Back in their studio, they began draping and pinning the garment.

Out in the store, women were already waiting breathlessly, while seamstresses worked around the clock, carefully hand-sewing and applying every piece of lace.
