             DOESN’T HAVE TO BE JUST A DREAM!                                                                                                                                                   Although they were beautiful in the ’80s and ’90s, our mothers’ gowns usually make us cringe.  But wouldn’t it be a lovely tribute to her to wear it on your most special day?  Take another, careful look at it with the thought that you can change it to make it your own while preserving the essence of the gown.  Some of my favorite and most successful projects have been restyling older, and even Vintage, garments.  I especially enjoy bridal and formal gowns and dresses!  Removing or shortening the sleeves, changing the back of the bodice, styling a different neckline, redistributing the lace and changing the skirt are just some of the possibilities.
 
If it has been frustrating and disappointing to look at and try on dress after dress and not finding The Dress, restyling one that isn’t quite  “right” could be for you!

                             YOUR CLOTHES ARE PROBABLY DANGEROUS!!                                                                                                   
 
In 1975 the National Fire Protection Agency ruled that no firefighter or emergency crew clothing could contain polyester because it melts in extreme heat.  Even fabric that contains just a percentage of polyester is dangerous in the right conditions.  Polyester doesn’t burn, it melts.  As it melts it literally melts into the wearer’s skin, making it impossible to remove without removing the skin, too. It’s a derivative of petroleum (yes, that petroleum that you put in your car!) and is plastic.  
 
Most clothing is made of fabric that contains at least a percentage of polyester or its relatives- Tercel, Acrylic and the ever mysterious “Synthetic “.  I tailor Wedding Attire and Formal Wear and can confidently say that, unless otherwise indicated, all of it is made of some form of polyester.  Imagine a bridal attendant standing just a little too close to a romantic candle…if her gown catches a flame, it will be almost instantly consumed and will melt onto her skin.  Tuxedos and suits aren’t exceptions.  They also are made of polyester blended fabric.
 
Formal wear is by no means the only concern.  ALL types of clothing are made with fabric containing polyester, as is furniture with fabric coverings.  Bed sheets and bath towels are usually exceptions, but it’s a good idea to check the label.
 
If a fabric content label (usually a small, about an inch square, white piece of cloth inside the garment.  Often they are found inside the back of the neck or waist or lower down on one side) does NOT say “100% cotton, wool, rayon, linen, raime or silk ”  then a percentage of it is polyester or one of its relatives.  Even a small amount has the potential to be dangerous.  
 
I’m not suggesting that you panic, just know what the fabrics in your life are made of.  Chances are excellent that you’ll never have a problem but you should be aware that the possibility of danger exists and you should be informed and cautious.  After all, polyester has made our lives easier and more beautiful.
