For the ceremony itself I wore the cardigan, and made a skirt form the remaining dress fabric, partly using the shiny side outside, partly using the dull side. I made the coat literally last minute from fabric my mother had bought ages ago. First she started to make a cape from it, but gave it to me as an UFO. I tried to make a duffle-coat type of thing from it, but also kept it in UFO state for years because it looked like a bathrobe. My wedding was a new motivation to make something more shaped from it. I had not dared that before because I did not want to destroy the embroidery.
