Here is another gown repair I recently completed. This had a tear in the lace overlay in the middle of the back of the gown. Most likely this happened when the young lady wearing it put her shoe heal through the lace. This one is not quite as old as the last one, it's from the 1950's.

Here is the back view of the gown after the repair.

This is such a sweet gown. Hopefully it will now be worn again. Smiley

Wow! You're a miracle worker! Standing back one would never notice there had been a repair.
