Want to wear your mother's wedding gown, but the style is outdated? Why not transform it into your on personal taste. That is exactly what this bride did. Mom's gown was beautiful but dated. The ivory gown has an Alencon lace overlay on silk dupioni. The blousey sleeves were made from chiffon with lace cuffs. As you can see the bodice is a sweetheart neckline with a high collar that completely buttoned down the back. The bride loved the skirt of the gown so the bodice was the only thing she wanted altered. We removed the sleeves completely. The collar was removed and used to construct beautiful wide lace straps. The lace from the cuffs was used to trim the straps as well as soften the neckline. The end result...a lovely transformation into a soft romantic wedding gown. What a way to make your mom proud!
