Jo Ann Chance sent us her wedding dress to have baptism outfits made for her daughter and future grandchildren. There was quite a bit of excitement in the studio when her WD arrived because it had beautiful red satin and silver embroidery/bead accents. We don’t get to work in color all that often with our Christening outfits. All of us wanted to work on this project
JoAnn wanted our gown, romper and bonnet combo. She also added a boy’s cap, a bow tie pin and a protective bib.
Kim Bokowski sent her wedding dress to have christening outfits made for current and future grandchildren. She chose to have a unisex gown with overlay and an ornate ceremonial robe along with accessories to make a complete ensemble for either a boy or a girl. We took advantage of every last bit of fabrics and materials from her original dress.
Trudy 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.
