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.
