Donna Johnson sent her wedding dress in to have christening outfits made forher grandchild and future grandchildren. She also asked us to make a ring pillow for her daughter’s future wedding. The gown was from the 1970s and had some lovely floral applique. The applique had colored over time and there wasn’t anything we could do about the color, so we incorporated it and the whole ensemble had a lovely heirloom quality to it.

Two Christening Outfits from Mom’s Wedding Dress

Linda Lotton wanted two complete christening outfits made from her wedding dress. Her dress was not very large so we augmented her fabrics just a little in order to get the two full outfits. Each set consisted of a christening gown, boy’s romper, boy’s cap and a headband. Olga and I were pleased with the results–and so was Linda.

We also made a bonnet, boy's cap, unisex booties and a couple of kerchiefs with the fabrics from her dress.Molly Anderson sent her wedding dress to have a unisex outfit made for her son and future children.
