    What a beautiful couple. But what are you both doing in that pic?

    We are jumping over a broom.

    Well, I know that's about all I want to do with a broom. But the dress is magnificent. Tell us a bit about it.

    Thanks, I do love the dress.

    I found it at a vintage shop for $25, but by the time I had it properly cleaned and altered...well, it wasn't so cheap.

    It's from the 1940's, and has many, many tiny fabric covered buttons down the front and at the wrists. It's a subtle floral tapestry and the neckline is called a "keyhole".

    I was referred to a fabulous woman who restored and fitted it for me, it took 6 fittings. Each time I went, she treated me like a princess and talked to me about the wedding. She had so much practical and sensible advice, it was a treat each time I visited.

    Lily has told us that she wants to wear it, and she also wants to marry daddy. ;)

    Wow, it looks like it's probably real satin brocade, not the fake stuff that's all that's available now. Or maybe glove silk. Beautiful.

    She described the fabric to me as "pre-war" something or other. I should have paid more attention.
