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.

Wedding Dress Converted to Heirloom Gifts

Susan Patricia decided to take full advantage of the materials from her dress when she sent it to us.  She wanted a variety of items made for her children, grandchildren and future grandchildren.  We made a couple of wedding garters, some embroidered kerchiefs and a ring pillow.  We pulled the satin binding from three baby blankets and replaced it with the satin from the wedding dress.  We also made a couple of sashes for future wedding bouquets, a Christmas ornament and a couple of zippered storage pouches.

First Communion Gown from Mom’s Wedding Dress

SodanoM02Jolene Sodano wanted to have her daughter’s First Communion dress designed using the remnants of her wedding dress. We had already created a christening gown for her youngest daughter from the dress.

Although there was quite a bit of material to use, we did have to augment it to get the overall look we were after. Jolene gave us a year to create this outfit. I was able to use that time to find just the right trims, laces and matching satins to get the gown that her daughter dreamed of being able to wear.

To be honest, I felt like I was shipping off a personal masterpiece.
