Cleaning and restoring of two vintage First Communion dresses

Restoring a First Communion dress to its original beauty is a skillful process that involves great thought and care at every stage of the cleaning, hand pressing, inspecting and packaging process.

Our client brought in two First Communion dresses - one worn by her 57 year old mother and one worn by her 56 year old aunt.

Both dresses had yellowed over time due to age, exposure to light and storage in an old, brown kraft cardboard box. In addition, one of the dresses exhibited quite a bit of rust.

The following series of before and after photos reflect the transformation of both dresses:
