    Wow I love this what a wonderful idea for the use of a wedding gown and something to pass down that will get used!

    I'm working on the slip and bonnet. Then i'm going to make a quilt from the leftovers while adding a very soft ivory brocade I picked up at Joanns . I'll post the whole set when its complete.
