Brides Dress: Reinvent Heirloom
Callie loves to dress up. Sharon (Michaels mom) graciously offered the gown she wore for her wedding with permission to do whatever Callie wanted to do to recreate it. We have begun the deconstruction process and will slowly reinvent the garment using all of the materials. This will be the gown worn for the evening wedding ceremony. Callie found a gown (Lazaro) last year at a bridal sale that was irristible. The original price was nearly 3K, however she paid $200. It is a bit soiled and tattered, but we will make the alterations and repairs. We will cut this gown to just above the ankle so that Callie can enjoy "playing" in it for the festivities on Day 2.
