I’m using my Grandmas wedding dress to make my own, through deconstructing it and using the material to make a complete new dress.
The great thing about reusing materials is that they have a past and stories to tell before they can even start telling the stories yet to come.
My Grandma, Frances, was married to my Granddad, William, in June 1954
Her dress was later altered for her sister, Joyce, to wear on her wedding day
And now, some 54 years after my Grandma first wore the dress, I’m working on making it into my own 🙂
I took some photos before I started cutting.
I don’t want to give too much away just yet, so i’ll leave you with that small taster of whats to come 🙂 I am excited to give you all a big reveal after the wedding!
Now I’m going back to stitching beads all over the lace!
Have a creative week!
