>My grandmother´s dress


This is the first of the projects I want to finish this year. This two-piece dress is a treasure to me. My grandfather’s brother was a sailor. He sailed the Seven Seas when it was still a grand adventure and when everyone in my coastal hometown had at least one man of the sea in the family.

This dress is bought somewhere in East Asia for at least fifty years ago. It was a favorite of my grandmother, and this is visible especially on some of the edges. But most of the embroideries are still looking fantastic, and the colors are beautiful.

My goal with this dress is to restore it back to former beauty. I am really looking forward to this project. I think that my first task is to find exact matching silk embroidery floss.
