The theme of this week seems to be ‘what to do with your wedding dress’. I’ve had 2 people in with wedding dresses that they love, but are (fairly obviously) not going to wear more than once.  Although I would be tempted to wear it every year on my anniversary if it was a dress I really liked! They are both lovely dresses, and so……

One of them, a lovely 20’s style beaded number is now a knee length cocktail dress and a zipped beaded cushion cover made from the offcuts.  The other was a corseted number with a beaded full skirt and is, so far, a corset top, a christening skirt for her baby, and on it’s way (i.e tomorrow) to being a ‘romper’ style christening suit as well, which covers both genders nicely I think! So both dresses are still a wearable item of clothing and a lovely heirloom piece as well. What a fab idea.
