Beatiful dress — and cute idea to cut it and keep using it!  Would you consider coloring it with dye so you could REALLY get a lot of use out of it?  (Maybe even wear it to a few weddings, hehe.)

I think it would look great a tea length dress. My friend is doing the same thing, making her dress into a tea length. It is a nice way to preserve it and you actually do get to wear it again

It would look very cute as a tea length. That really stinks that it got stepped on so much and ruined! Make sure you save the dress after you wear it for your anniversary. If you should ever have a daughter or a FDIL, they might want to use a piece of your dress for their something old

What kind of dress is that? It looks almost EXACTLY like mine, but a little different. Mine is a Maggie Sottero AD1008 (no cool name for mine). I was hoping to have mine cut into a really cool shirt which I could wear under little mini short-sleeved blazers (which I wear constanly). My thought is to have it asymetrical on the bottom because of the rushing (rusching? rooshing?). I just thought it would look really great with jeans. I bet it would good as a knee or tea length as well!

Awwww it would be sooo cute as a tea-length! I am a little sorry to hear that your dress was a bit tattered though. I’m glad you’re so positive about it and I bet it will look fantastic!

Sounds like a great idea. I also love the idea of coloring it.

thats a relief to know!  A friend of mine said the same thing, so Im really looking forward to it   Let me know if you need the name of a good tailor for your dress if you do decide to cut it.  The guy that co-owns the bridal shop where I bought my dress (in Fayetteville, NY) is incredible at reconstruction, he might be a good reference.
