While doing my recent collection search entry I happened upon this wedding dress which has a horseshoe sewn into the hem. I thought that was kind of odd bc it didn't register as a horseshoe in my mind, but put two and two together when I found this dress, which also had a horseshoe. Of course I looked this up and it's a bridal tradition to sew a horseshoe into the hem of your wedding dress for good luck. Isn't that a nice little tradition? I read something that a whole horseshoe used to be used, but it has since been reduced to a manageable size. I searched the other dresses for horseshoes, but to no avail, which doesn't necessarily mean they don't have them.
