June is the end of my first year as owner of Marilyn Arnold Designs. It has been an exciting fun time following my passion for creating treasures from vintage wedding gowns. I have branched out in the last year to not only making pillows, but also making garters, ring bearer pillows and drawstring purses. It is so special to give your daughter, granddaughter, or niece a very personal gift for their wedding.
I made this garter for a customer to give her daughter on her wedding day. It is made from the pleated ruffle on the Mom’s dress and flowers from her picture hat.
