Recently a friend’s daughter was getting married and she loved her grandmother’s wedding dress, but as a 6′ size 12 there was no way this 5′ size 4 was going to fit. Rather than try and alter the dress, we decided to deconstruct it and turn it into wedding accessories as well as keepsakes for all the other grandchildren so that everyone would have a piece to cherish. Pictured here are some of the garder belts I made as well as two of the clutch purses I created using the Martha Stewart tutorial. I also made several shawls, travel jewelry bags and pin cushions. I really think this is the best way to honor the white dress.
