Baptism Outfit made from Grandmother’s 1980s Dress

Denise Larner sent her wedding dress from the early 1980s to have this ensemble made for her first grandson and any future grandchildren. The gown is our traditional “Bishop” style. We tried to keep it unisex while also capturing some of the lovely lace elements from the original dress.

Christening Ensemble and Burp Cloths

Capturing the Lovely Details

The WD had a lot of asymmetric elements that we needed to make more symmetric in order for them to work on an infant gown so we ended up taking all the lace off and re-applying it–something my two assistants appreciated

Toddler Tux and Infant Gown

BottigerB01webBrandi Bottiger sent her wedding dress to have a baptism outfit made for her infant daughter and a tuxedo jacket made for her three-year-old son. We tried to emphasize the beautiful lace and bead work in the gown and picked up just a bit of it for the jacket as well.

Organza Combo Delight

WimmerV01webVictoria Wimmer asked for this Christening Gown, Romper & Bonnet combo from her wedding dress. Her WD had a lot of organza so we used it. Not only did the “Princess” style gown have a flowing layer of organza, we also treated the organza over the WD lining material as a single fabric for the romper.

Lace Makes Elegant Combo
