One wedding gown has been passed down for generations in one Pennsylvania family.

For 120 years, the women have all worn the heirloom dress and next month, Abigail Kingston from Bethlehem will become the 11th woman in her family to walk down the aisle in it.

When Abigail got the Victorian gown, she initially thought there was no way she could wear it because of its condition.

But a local Lehigh County designer spent 200 hours restoring it and getting it to fit Abigail just right.

Deborah LoPresti tells Action News thr dress is made is raw silk - and needed a lot of work.

Abby's "something blue" will be her grandmother's blue star sapphire ring.
