Paul Antonie & Jane Thom, March 9, 2019

When Jane’s mom, Linda, contacted me last year about the 63-year-old vintage wedding gown that Jane hoped to wear for her wedding, I was a little surprised at her request. Most of the time, I’m asked to remove color from a gown…due to yellowing with age or a stain. However, this gown was originally blush and had lost some of the pretty tones over time, becoming splotchy and a little colorless.

I used a few different techniques to add just the right amount of color back into the fabric without turning it into “Barbie-doll pink”; which was something Jane did NOT want, of course!

Our thanks to Linda Thom for the photographs and following information.
