a dress for a wedding

actually, for my wedding.
My boyfriend T. and I got married this March. It was a very small wedding with close family members and a couple of friends. I had never planned to wear a pouf-y white number, so I decided to finally put my granddad’s old tablecloth to a good use. He died at the end of last year, and it was lovely to wear something that reminded me of him (although I’m quite sure that this wasn’t his favourite tablecloth…).

Material Notes

a black and white linen cross weave fabric
my granddad’s tablecloth for the bib





my sister in law Rike for the pictures

    I like the lace effect at the top. Congrads.

    A wonderful idea to re-use the tablecloth, and it also meant so much to you. It looked both vintage and very chic. Love it!
