No 56: Something Old

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

My grandparents were married on New Year’s Eve, 1950, and my mother wore the vintage gown when she married my dad in October 1978. Unfortunately, it was poorly preserved and the lace is badly damaged. The worst part is that I would love to wear it: full-skirted lace gown with a tiny waist and a beautiful bodice covered in sheer netting. While the dress itself isn’t useable, I’d like to make a garter from a piece of it, so that I can carry on that tradition.
