Tess Newall is a set designer in Scotland who wore a very special gown on her wedding day. In 1870, her great, great grandmother made the dress by hand and passed the dress down to her daughter, who passed it on to Tess.
The dress was one of the most special things about the day. It made it complete and I was overjoyed to have been able to wear such a beautiful family heirloom.”
Like many brides, she took the dress to be professionally cleaned in order to store it until she could pass the dress on to another woman in her family. She dropped the dress off at Kleen Cleaners in Edinburgh, but when her father went to pick the dress up, the shop had traded hands and the dress was no longer there. Tess is afraid that the family heirloom has been sold off and posted this picture on Facebook in hopes of tracking it down. It could be anywhere by now, and she hopes that the unique dress will be easily identified. She shared the name of the cleaners in hopes that someone will remember purchasing a wedding dress from it and not to start a “witch hunt” against he company.
Hopefully, she’ll get her dress back soon!
