Gail at the V&A emailed me to say that the museum is organi[s|z]ing a new exhibition on wedding fashion for 2011, and they need some help in creating a very large database of wedding fashions. They’re looking for photographs of clothes worn for weddings from all cultures between 1840 and the present (and by “weddings,” they include civil partnerships, yay).

You can check out the wedding fashion project at the V&A site. Pictured above is my grandmother in the 1930’s with her wedding dress she designed and made herself. (Yes I come from a very crafty family!)

    WOW! That is an amazing dress. Your grandmother is a beautiful woman. She must be very proud to have passed on the crafting gene.

    Thanks! She actually died when my dad was 7 years old so I never go to know her. I’d like to think she likes what I’m doing now a lot! :)
