Vintage Wedding Dress Keepsake

At Upcycle Addict, Sherry’s mother sent her wedding dress to Sherry recently, asking her to “Do something with it.”  The wedding dress was truly lovely, but the embroidered fabric had yellowed over time.  Instead of trying to fit the dress into a shadow box, Sherry decided to create something that her mother could touch and hold from the fabric.

Not wanting to cut into the main part of the dress, Sherry cut away part of the dress’s train.  She sewed the fabric into a throw pillow, even utilizing the zipper from the wedding dress for the pillow!  The new pillow was lovely and Sherry’s mother was delighted when it was presented to her.  “This is so much better than being stored away in a bag in the attic!” Sherry notes.

  1. This is beautiful! What a way to make a remembrance. My mom has a dress I have always admired and as I have been married almost 20 years and didn’t and never will fit in her dress this will probably be one of the best ways to show it off! Great idea!

  2. Hi exceptional blog! Does running a blog similar to this
    take a lot of work? I have virtually no expertise in programming but I had been hoping
    to start my own blog in the near future. Anyway, should you
    have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off topic however I just needed to ask.

  5. First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick
    question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I
    was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind
    prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas
    out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any ideas or hints? Kudos!
