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!

If you would like to pass along the memories but do not want or need it to be kept as a wedding dress, then call us at 518-695-4867. We can talk about the various options for your particular dress and help you accomplish them.


I am happy to announce that we have upgraded the website again to make things even better for everyone!

Our new website is built as a “blog”. This means we can make the content even MORE dynamic, with more frequent additions and updates!


The sidebar has links to:

  • A variety of pages here on the me, myself & I website.
  • Blog entries, also called “articles” or “posts” on various topics. Simply click on the topic name to see all the entries for that topic.
  • A list of links to the associations and organizations that I belong to
  • A list of links to sewing resources that you may find helpful
  • Access to the monthly and annual archives. Old articles are automatically archived there each month.
  • For those familiar with “news feed” technology, on the site administration section we have links to let you automatically get updates from our site.

Its a lot all at once. All of the old pages are still here & available. But now we have more content than ever before!
