This redesign was made from the Bride's Mom's dress and simple satin circle skirt gown she purchased from us. We took the lace from Mom's bodice and put it over the satin sweetheart bodice. Then we used the lace appliques from Mom's dress and veil to create the v neck front and back. We used the entire organza skirt as an overlay . It fell almost to the bottom of the satin skirt, so we added a row of lace to make it long enough across the front. To give it some sparkle, we added silver trimmed lace and a tiny bit of beading to the bodice. We finished it with a narrow rhinestone and pearl belt and a white fur stole. Oh and pockets!!!!
This Brides dress was made from her Grandmothers wedding dress. We used the lace from the bodice in tact to create a bodice to fit our Bride. Then we made a lining with all the structure she needed. We used the whole skirt from Grandmas dress as is . Our Bride was taller so we put a satin and lace border under the skirt that looked like another skirt. We used the rest of grandmas lace to finish the neckline and shoulders. Jenny made a custom belt using tiny vintage pearls on vintage lace. Then added sparkle with crystals and rhinestones. The finishing touch came from the Bride. She found two buttons with pearl centers and a ring of tiny rhinestones around it. Jenny put one in the center of her belt and the other on her grandmothers pearl necklace. It was the perfect finishing touch.
The top dress is the Bride's Grandmothers dress before we took it apart for her Silk Shantaung 1980's Redesign

This was the Brides Mother's Dress. We changed the jacket by shortening the sleeves and making the neckline lower. Then we put pearl buttons down the back. The belt is made from vintage ivory and silver lace with tiny pearls and just a couple of rhinestones set on an ivory satin sash.
