Speaking of wedding gowns...
Hi everyone :)
Like many of you, I've been struggling with organizing my home.
Here's my problem... my mom just recently moved into an apartment and has given me a few things (which I felt I couldn't turn down). The first thing was her wedding gown from 50+ years ago -- the second was her old singer sewing machine in a cabinet (I don't sew).
I just took the (size 2?) wedding gown out of the box, and amazingly, aside from a few areas that are yellowing, it's in good condition. Any ideas on what I should I do with it? I'm already married and don't have children of my own, so I don't have anyone to pass this along to.
I've heard of people making crafts out of old gowns (ie christening gowns, keepsake pillows, etc.) I would have to pay to have this done, as I am not crafty at all! Any ideas you have would be much appreciated.
Should I just give away the sewing machine? It's collecting dust in my basement, and quite honestly, I will probably never learn how to sew.
Oh the guilt!
