Evening Dress Cushion Cover

A pure wool, jade coloured evening dress was a recent vintage find.  It came with a few moth holes.  The fact that it was damaged made it easier to cut it up and sew it into 2 unique cushion covers.

The whole long central panel was embellished and there was enough fabric to make matching backs.  The covers are on lovely squishy feather inners!  It's good to know this dress will see the limelight again! 
Sshhh!  Someone is getting them for Christmas!
