Vintage Mexican Wedding Dress Revamped

I had to do it, I know some said not to but I had to. I posted last week about this beautiful Vintage Mexican Wedding Dress I found, I wasn’t sure what I should do with it. Someone left a comment, thank you Michaelann, that if I don’t do anything to it, will I wear it or get use out of it? And thinking about that question I thought, No, I probably would never wear it as is, so I decided to shorten it and take off the sleeves and I love it now. This was the dress I wore to my nieces wedding last Saturday.

It turned out sooo cute! Hmmmm, now you have me thinking! My old wedding dress is a Gunne Sac dress… of course it’s vintage now…. we got married in 1976! But I may have to do some alterations to maybe wear it again! Funny how if you leave things long enough you find ways to re-use!
