Recently we performed a wedding gown restoration and preservation on this vintage gown. It is made of lace and tulle over satin acetate, with a lace bodice and lace appliques on the skirt.It also has pearls on waist and neckline area.
This vintage wedding gown is about 60 years old and desperately needed wedding gown restoration. The wedding dress was yellowed with oxidized stains on several areas. All of the metal snaps and hooks had tarnished and the glossy pearl coating of the pearls was coming off.
Wedding Gown Restoration Treatment
We used a chemical soaking to whiten the wedding gown but utilized a very mild treatment because the lace was very fragile. After wedding gown restoration we hand pressed the wedding gown and preserved it with Museum Method preservation.
The results were very good. We were thrilled and our costumer was very happy to have the gown restored to it’s original beauty.
