i love this idea and i think your mom would really like it too – espically if she has made previous comments regards not looking at her dress.

I wish rehersal dinners were something we did in the UK as i would defiantely look into doing the same!

I don’t know what size your sister is, but did your mom expect you to wear it when it was definitely not your size? 

Anyways. I think the only way to know is to take the dress and a picture of what you would like to make from it to a seamstress and ask for a quote/ if it’s possible.

If she had a veil, maybe you could wear hers?  Or use the fabric from her dress for a shawl or bolero?


I used some of the lace from my mom’s veil as a wrap for my bouquet and it worked out great!
