Cheryl Olko sent her wedding dress to have us make a christening gown for her granddaughter to wear. The wedding dress was covered in lace and was very straight with a back slit. We flipped the skirt around and added a cascade and took advantage of all the beautiful lace and bead work.
Shelley Caffey sent this note with her wedding dress:
“Gown belongs to myself. Married 39 years ago. I want the gown/romper for future grandchildren. To be passed down.”
We made a gown and romper combo along with some booties and a headband.
Lauren Littlefield sent her wedding dress to have this christening gown ensemble made for her daughter and any future children. In addition to the gown, we made a girl and a boy bonnet, a pair of unisex booties and a lovely jewelry pouch.
Sarah Collins sent her daughter’s baptism gown and communion dress to have us combine the fabrics into a baptism gown for her granddaughter. We had to be creative to get enough fabric for a standard baptism gown, but I was pleased with the results.
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.
Mary Munchak sent her wedding dress AND her mother’s wedding dress to have the materials combined into christening outfits for her new grandson and any future grandchildren. The original wedding dress was made of a lovely satin and worked well for making a gown, romper, robe and some accessories.
