Vintage wedding dress converted to lightweight coat or dressing gown.

Why wear a wedding dress just once when you can re-style it to wear whenever you want a little glamour boost?

Instead of zipping up the back (because you don’t get to keep the maid-of-honour service forever), this dress now ties in the front with wonderfully soft satin ribbons.  (Hint: the ties also allow a bit of flexibility in case your “ideal wedding day weight” doesn’t last forever.)

Although the conversion was initially intended to be a dressing gown, there’s no reason why this can’t go out on the town as a lightweight coat or tunic.

The original garment was a vintage hand-made wedding dress.  Fiber content is 100% unknown but predominantly or entirely synthetic.

Garment measurements are below.  Please note that garment measurements for non-stretch items like this one, should be slightly larger than your body measurements to allow for ease (ie wiggle-room when wearing it).  This is especially true for items that are to be worn over other garments.
