Margaret's Cleaners "Famous" Split Gown

Several years ago, Margaret's bought an old wedding gown at Goodwill, cut it down the middle, restored half of it, and then sewed it back together, as an example of what can be done with restoration techniques. The right side (as you look at this image) is "before" and the left side is "after". Most of the yellowing caused by age has been eliminated by the restoration process.
The gown is "famous" because it's been featured at all the bridal shows we attend and has even been on a TV news show about the restoration and preservation of wedding gowns.
