below is kristin's moms wedding dress. you should have seen it in person. it was just lovely. love the lace detail on the bodice. hand covered buttons down the back. by the looks of it i guessed it was handmade... and it was, just for her, sometime in the late 70's.
we have turned several "momma's wedding dress" into short dresses for the stylish bride who wants to pay tribute to her mothers style and taste and made them a dress of their own to wear on their day. here, we decided to use the lace to make a garter for kristen for her wedding day... after all what could be better than a garter from your mothers lace from her dress? i just love how it turned out.
