I recently received a call from a friend announcing that he was going to get married. Congratulations! His lovely fiancee wished to have her grandma’s 1920’s wedding gown to be re-constructed so that she could wear it for her wedding.
Despite my very busy schedule I said YES! I love this kind of projects!
Here is the dress. It was made with silky satin of a very light baby maize color.
The dress had been stored in the attic in a simple box, unfortunately the skirt is too dirty now and can’t be saved. Short dropped sleeve, tiny convertible collar. Front closure is made with rat-tail cord loops and fabric covered buttons.
Buttons are very old need to be changed. Luckily the dress has long gloves with lots of similar buttons, they look a little bit cleaner, hopefully I will be able to use them. Sorry, I forgot to take pictures of the gloves.
Pictures of the deconstructed dress will follow in my next blog.
Follow me for the updates on this project!
