While some of you may be filled with horror at the thought of cutting into your wedding dress, I have come up with an alternative. My dress, as you can see, is all lace & satin.. That was way back in 1986 and most of them were like that.
In a moment of madness I considered squeezing myself into it, but with the dress waist measurement of barely 26 inches I decided against it. I didn’t want to trap myself between multiple layers of fluffy frou frou.. It is also quite heavy and too bulky to be kept in a drawer or wardrobe. Which is why it’s been tied up in a bin bag for 27 years (sacre bleu!!).
I am going to attempt a “memory quilt” using squares of the dress with other suitable material, I can then lay it on the bed instead of hiding it in the shed. Would you take a chance??
