WEDDING DRESS

A few weeks ago I mentioned that and my new neighbour went out for a day of shopping.  Well this wedding gown was another item that came home with me.

It is a very pale off white and the material in the skirt is one of the nicest satins I have ever seen.  It might be silk  peau de soie.  I remember it was used extensively in wedding dresses going back probably in my time.  I found on Google they describe it as a very soft silk satin.

Lovely wedding dress. You are right about fabric of yesteryear is much better quality than now. Blissful Joy...

How beautiful is that! How can anyone bear to part with their wedding dress? I suppose if you don't have any daughters (or DILs) who would like to have it. So, echoing Debra's question - what are your plans for this dress?

Beautiful. I wonder what the back story to that is that someone could part with it.

It's so gorgeous! Were you at Rennigers? Maybe it'll fit on your "lady of the patio" don't know that she has a name. Carol
