Vintage Restyle : Cortney
One of the most unique vintage gowns from this season has been Cortney’s. Cortney’s wedding plans were unique to…she and her fiance were planning a surprise wedding! So, during the entire time of restoring and restyling the vintage gown that had belonged to her grandmother, we had to pretend that it was for “someday down the line…” and keep her secret from her mom and other family members who came with her to the fittings.
The wedding gown was originally from 1952. When Cortney brought it to our studio, we fell in love with the design. It needed cleaning and some lace repair as well as a bit of restyling to the neckline and bodice to make it just a bit more modern for Cortney.
