Communion Tie and Veil

Communion Tie and Veil

Catherine Scholz sent us some of her wedding dress remnants to have a First Communion neck tie and short veil made from them. The fabric from the wedding dress was translucent so I had to back it with some satin for the tie.

Christmas Tree Topper Angel from Wedding Dress

SilhanD02webDiana Silhan sent her wedding dress to have a christening outfit made for her daughter.  She also had some accessories made from the remnants including a Christmas tree topper angel, a couple of pocket squares and a communion tie.

Organza Ruffles Make Princess Gown

WoolfT01webTrudy Woolf sent her wedding dress to have a blessings gown made for her future grandchildren to wear. We chose to try and mimic the primary decorative elements of the original WD in the skirt and along the collar. We also made an infant bow-tie pin and neck tie for any future grandsons to wear.

Maximizing the Materials

Colleen Speer wanted to get as much from her wedding dress as possible. When you only have one, sometimes it makes sense to think about the future. We made her future grandchildren a unisex gown with a ceremonial robe. That allows her family to use the outfit for any child/granchild/great grandchild. In addition, we made a boy's confirmation tie, a bib, three kerchiefs, a pretty headband and a coursage pin that incorporated a bit of each of the major elements of her wedding dress as a keepsake.Colleen wanted to get as much from her wedding dress as possible.

Liane,

I just wanted to follow up on my son’s baptism and share my thoughts on your work.

Words cannot describe how thrilled I was to see my son wearing my wedding gown on his christening day!  You and your team did a BEAUTIFUL job maintaining the character of my gown while also creating something that will work for either a boy or a girl.  I am especially grateful for your patience and vision since I really had no idea what I wanted! You have created an heirloom for our family and I can’t wait to pass this stunning creation down to my children and grandchildren. I was also really happy with the other items you created, including the handkerchiefs for my sons’ future weddings (hopefully!), my son’s communion tie, the flower headband and my flower pin. All have special meaning to me and I can’t wait to pass them down!

I have already shared your name with so many people.  Best of luck and thank you for creating such a beautiful heirloom!! You are a gem! Thanks for sharing your talents!

Colleen Speer and family
