Restoring a 1959 bridal headpiece

Andrea arrived at my studio with her mother’s gorgeous, 1959 wedding dress and floral bridal headpiece.
She wanted the headpiece restored for her niece to wear to her wedding in 2016 … and to wear to her own wedding in 2017.
The dress and headpiece were very fragile as they had been in the much loved, family “dress up box” and worn many times over the years!

Andrea said I was welcome to use some of the silk from the wedding dress if needed.
After pulling the headpiece apart I used some pieces from the dress to make the new base and petals.
… forward to April 2016Andrea’s niece, Bec wore the restored headpiece to her beautiful wedding!
More photos will be added here when Andrea wears the headpiece for her own wedding in 2017
