Kathleen Hoppe sent her wedding dress to have two little train skirts for her daughters to wear as flower girls in their uncle’s wedding. Kathleen’s dress had lots of gathered organza ruffles–which gave me quite a challenge to tame smile emoticon In addition to the skirts, we made a couple of kerchiefs, a jewelry pouch and a wedding garter.
Kathleen Brothers sent her wedding dress to be made into a flower girl’s dress for her daughter to wear to her uncle’s wedding. We also made a matching headband and panties as well as a wedding garter.
Meghan Dyckman sent her wedding dress to have a christening gown made for her first daughter. She wanted a sleeveless gown in our princess style. She also ordered a wedding garter for the future.
Susan Patricia decided to take full advantage of the materials from her dress when she sent it to us. She wanted a variety of items made for her children, grandchildren and future grandchildren. We made a couple of wedding garters, some embroidered kerchiefs and a ring pillow. We pulled the satin binding from three baby blankets and replaced it with the satin from the wedding dress. We also made a couple of sashes for future wedding bouquets, a Christmas ornament and a couple of zippered storage pouches.

Claudette Areddy sent her wedding veil and her mother’s veil to have this garter made for her daughter’s upcoming wedding. We combined elements from both into the one garter so that Claudette’s daughter can have an heirloom from two previous generations to wear on her special day.
