Description

This was originally my mothers wedding-skirt, made by my grandmother. It had not been used in 26 years so we decided it was time to do something with it. And this is the result.
I did some figure-adjustments at the sides, added a button in the neck as well as a channel at the inner curve of the lower part of the back and got both a nice decoration as well as a well flattering fitting.
So now she can use it again and again no matter what figure she developes over the years as the back-string is so adjustable!
(my exuses that the dress was not ironed before photographed)

Material Notes

White half linen half cotton fabric.
