my grandmother made my mother's wedding dress for her and it's very simple and very beautiful, but it just wasn't me.
so, considering my mom would not be wearing her dress again, we decided to give it another use...
i took it to my seamstress who is making my wedding dress (sorry, wont be posting any pics pre-wedding but i have a whole lineup of secrets and surprises scheduled to post while we're on our honeymoon!), and she was able to create a "cocktail" dress out of it, which i will wear to the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner :). she used every piece of the dress, including lace and all. it's a perfect way to wear my mother's dress, but for another use.
here it is!
|9.16.1978 - see how pretty she looks!|
|this is such a weird picture. my eyes look brown and i look like i'm confused. either way, here is the BEFORE.|
|i cut my head off because it was a fugly face. but do you recognize the shoes? :) (and don't worry, i will be wearing a slip!)|
i'm so excited to be able to continue the legacy with the dress, and maybe it can continue on with my family when the time comes.
