Dear Auntie, dont roll in your grave!
Jennifer Kessler wanted to wear her dear Aunts' wedding dress to the Edwardian Ball on Saturday night at the Great American Music Hall. She had a waist cincher and little white top hat to match, but the dress needed a little "something". I bustled up the dress very carefully as I didnt want to ruin the gown for posterity's sake. And her family might have killed us! I basted a panel on to the waistband and along the side back. I basted in some tulle for body, and then I tacked the train to the inside panel to create a bustled effect for the evening. She can take the whole thing apart very easily without destroying the dress.
Simple and effective.
And the camera loved her.
