Wedding Gown Restoration

Before Wedding Gown Restoration. 1990's Wedding Dress restored after improper storage.
This dress was brought to us 13 years after the bride wore it, celebrated in it, and after a guest spilled a drink on it. She told us that she was, "only getting married once, so why get it preserved?" It turns out that her sister is now getting married and thinks this is the perfect gown and wants to wear it at her own nuptials.

You can see yellowing on the lace in the middle section and along the bottom. At the bottom you can also see dirt on the hem picked up from the ground on the day the gown was worn.

On the right you can see the gown after our work was completed. The entire dress was restored to its original color including the beading. The coloring is now even and the dress is pressed and ready to be worn.

In the picture below, you can see the bottom of the gown. All of the dirt on the hem has been removed along with any discoloration.
