New Life from Old Wedding Dress

New Life from Old Wedding Dress

Gloria sent her wedding dress to have us make a christening outfit for her granddaughter.  The wedding dress had some pretty  materials to work with. One of the things that older dresses (especially ones from the late 70s and early 80s) often have is some beautiful lace.  However, it can be hard to tell just how beautiful the lace is because, back then, it was usually gathered.  I like to take the gather out of the lace and use it flat so you can see the pretty, delicate pattern.

“Liane, received the dress so happy it turned out beautiful!  It’s soooo beautiful! I just love what you did. Thank you so much Liane  Can’t wait to give it to my daughter. Thanks so much” Gloria Geden.

Pat Zielinski sent her wedding dress to have us make a christening outfit for her grandchild. Here is what she had to say about the finished gown:

“Hello Liane, The gown arrived Saturday and we are so thrilled with the outcome – you definitely must be a fairy godmother because you worked magic on my 48 (yikes!) year old gown.  It is better than I could have ever imagined. Many thanks for this treasure,”  Pat Zielinski

Joy Scott sent her wedding dress to have us make an heirloom christening gown for her granddaughter. The original dress had some lovely corded lace but not much lace trim so I chose to make a lace element on the front skirt and put the lace on the gown bodice. We used up pretty-much all of the lace in this little gown.

OOOOOHHHH, pictures! Kelly Butcher sent pictures of her daughter in the Christening outfit we created for her from her Mother’s wedding dress. I absolutely LOVE getting to see the outfits being worn and isn’t this one such a cutie?

A Touch of Pink in Christening Outfit

Penelope Simpson sent her wedding dress to have a christening outfit made for her granddaughter. We don’t often get wedding dresses with color in them so, when we do, we like to play with the color a bit.  The floral overlay made for such an elegant outfit.
