Ladies sometimes call to ask about what to do with their old wedding dress. After the wedding the dress is typically dry cleaned and sealed into a storage box to help preserve it. Sometimes the dress has already been shared and reused by a relative or close friend and again placed into storage.

But what about those dresses. Other than being worn for another wedding, what else can be done with them?

They can be disassembled and the fabric used to create a completely new creation from your “something old”. The material can be included in a memory quilt, or a christening gown. The dress may even be able to be altered and cut down to create a cocktail dress! One young lady had her grandmother’s wedding dress converted into a costume for a ballerina’s role in Swan Lake!
