Satin Wedding Dresses

Gloria's mother wore this white satin wedding dress for her wedding in 1949.  The brown dress was worn by her grandmother at that wedding.  It's 48 x 56.  
I added a sleeve on the back so she can hang it.




I was able to include a lot of the decorations from both dresses:



beading on the wedding gown





buttons down the back of the gown





buttons at the neckline of the brown dress




flower at the waistline of the brown dress




I copied the beading pattern to use as the quilting pattern:







I was able to find a backing that was just perfect.
