My mother was generous enough to offer up her wedding dress to my scissors and allowed me to deconstruct it in order to make some accessories for my wedding day. The dress had plenty of beautiful fabric, lace, and appliques for me to work with, and it was really special to have a part of my parents' wedding become a part of mine 36 years later. I created my garter, clutch purse, flower girl's dress, and ring bearer's pillow all from my mother's dress! Details to follow with tips for DIYers.
