The traditional reason to keep a wedding dress might be to save it for daughters and granddaughters, but according to Kim, there's countless other ways to pass your gown on. "I had a customer turn hers into a christening gown for her daughter," she told me. "A lot of people cut out squares for baby blankets and quilts." These are all projects you can do yourself or through companies that specialize in up-cycling garments, such as Old New Borrowed Redo
, one of Kim's favorites.
