Recycling Inspiration – a Beautiful Wedding Dress

The Parachute Wedding Dress

This is both beautiful and inspiring! A wedding-dress made from a life-saving WWII parachute – this was not the only one – many parachutes were brought home to girlfriends who fashioned everything from lingerie to their wedding gowns out of them. But this one is especially lovely and clever! I like the way she devised to make the skirt short in the front and long in the back! So clever. these parachutes contained up to 40 yards of silk so you could do quite a lot  with that!
