The cleaning and restoration of a 1951 wedding gown

A client brought in her mother's wedding gown (Germany 1951) for restoration to it's original beauty.

Her parents were going to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary and our client thought that it would be appropriate to restore her mother's dress for the occasion.

As you can see from the before photos, the gown was in poor condition: dirty hem; old caramelized sugar stains; discolored glue (binding the flowers to the dress) and rust.

The before and after photos reflect the transformation.
