How to repurpose a wedding dress?
It's about that time to let go of my wedding dress (Maybe!). Even being from the 70's, I still feel like it's the most beautiful piece of clothing I have ever worn. The veil itself is fairly long and very intricate and delicate. I have little grandsons and I'm not expecting more so I've been thinking about it. It's an Olegg Cassini and I have to say my mother had a bottomless pocket book when it came to my wedding. I have thought about selling it....but I don't think the style is ready to be revived yet. I've heard of organizations that will make Christening gowns for babies, and sadly, even burial gowns and clothes for newborns that passed away at birth. I would glady GIVE this dress to either, but they are overloaded with donations.
It's very bittersweet to think about....but I won't make any decisions quickly. BTW- My mother had it cleaned and stored in an heirloom box for preservation. It's really just like new. [sigh]
