1940's WWII Parachute Wedding Dress
Out and about yesterday I came across a 40's wedding gown. One of my favorite eras for wedding dresses BTW. Got me to thinking about one of the amazing treasures I would love to have in my personal collection, a 1940's Parachute Wedding Dress. These dresses were made from the parachutes used in WWII. Because fabric was scarce in the 40's during WWII, the bride-to -be would have her military man bring back the parachute and then the bride would have her dress made out of the chute silk. So romantic! Here is a dress made from a WWII parachute donated to the Smithsonian's Collection...
