I recently had an opportunity to take vintage bridesmaid’s dresses and make memory pillows. I assume my client was gifting them to the bride and groom. She asked me to include the name and the date of the wedding.

In each case I added piping and the bow that was on the back of the green dress was later sewn on after giving my client the option to have it or not.

Both pillows are 14″ square. I wanted them to be a bit smaller since they would be used as an accent pillow. And the embroidery became the main focus.

I was delighted how they turned out. However, I admit the photos don’t do them justice.
