Wedding gown repurposing ideas needed

Katrina WarrenSuzetteConnie Broussard Richard


What can be done to a vintage (late 1940's) satin wedding gown, never cleaned but in good shape. Has a small train & dozens of satin covered buttons down back & small amount of soiled lace. I would like to create remembrance items.

    can reuse the fabric to make confirmation dress for little girl, or a princess dress with colorful bows and ribbons and beads..even baptism dress for baby. Or how about this- make a wedding dress for a doll and keep it in a glass case forever. the hardest part of sewing is affording great fabric. you have a gold mine there..

    It would make a lovely ring bearer pillow and other wedding items for children or grandchildren's wedding. Lace could be used for other items. I love Judy's idea too, would make a lovely christening gown for babies.

    WE take the Wedding dress and make it into a long Baptismal gown that is passed down for the next generation !

    My niece makes dolls. She made a doll for me and used my wedding dress material to make a dress for the doll. It is beautiful.
