Judith Mosier sent her wedding dress to have us make several items including a patchwork blanket, a couple of bears, tooth fairy pillows, a couple of cabbage patch doll dresses and roses.
Her wedding dress had limited amounts of lace that we placed on different squares. We also created patterns with ribbon and different strips of the different materials to create variety.
Jolene 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.
The long gown had spaghetti straps that were covered in beads with a beaded belt.
We added a bolero jacket to conform with the Church’s requirement that shoulders be covered
A simple veil with matching lace and a comb with some of the same beading as the belt
An outfit for her doll as well.
It IS a Masterpiece! You are absolutely amazing and I cannot thank you enough for the beautiful dresses you created for our daughters! I am in awe of this dress! It’s even more gorgeous in person! Thank you so much!!! Jolene
