September's Bride of the Month: Samantha | The Marilyn Johnson Sewing Design Studio, LLC

How Marilyn turned a one piece Wedding Gown to a two piece ensemble!

Samantha is our bride of the month because her project was so unique. Our team has re-worked and re-designed wedding gowns before, but Samantha’s dress was quite an interesting challenge. A lot of money goes into a wedding gown only for it to be worn once and tossed away into the abyss of a closet or storage room. Samantha thought of the perfect way to wear her dress again — re-design it to become a skirt.

Marilyn’s details:

“Samantha wanted the fun and joy of wearing her wedding gown again, but we all know that’s not practical. She came up with the idea of re-designing the gown into a skirt and corset. Many careful measurements later, we made the cuts, re-hemmed the (now) skirt to remove the train, reapplied the lace scallops and VIOLA!”

We were honored to work on this piece for you, Samantha!
