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.
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.
Courtney Bedillion sent her wedding dress to have a baptism romper and gown set made for her new son and any future babies and grandbabies. Her wedding dress had a lovely mesh with tiny silk flowers in small bunches that we tried to maximize in both the baptism gown and the romper. In addition to the gown and romper, we made a matching bonnet, protective bib and pretty hairband.
Mary Furman sent her wedding dress and her daughter’s mother-in-law’s wedding dress to have a christening outfit made for their first grandchild. The wedding dresses were both very different and mixing the different materials was a challenge, but we were pleased with the results.
For the gown, we used the satin from the MIL WD on the bodice and sleeves and added some lacey applique from Mary’s WD. The skirt used the lining fabric from the MIL WD and an overlay of organza and ace from Mary’s WD.[/ezcol_1third][ezcol_1third]
The booties used the satin and lining fabrics from the MIL WD and we appliqued some flowers from Mary’s WD.[/ezcol_1third][ezcol_1third_end]
The bib used the satin from the MIL WD and an applique of lace from Mary’s WD. [/ezcol_1third_end]
The headband was made from the lining and organza of Mary’s WD with beads from the MIL WD.[/ezcol_1third][ezcol_1third]
The panties used the lining fabric from the MIL WD and were decorated with some accordion organza from Mary’s WD.[/ezcol_1third][ezcol_1third_end]
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.
Jillian Reynolds sent her wedding dress to have us make this christening outfit for her daughter. We tried to keep some of the design elements from the original dress in the gown. It is a challenge to make ruching work in infant wear, but I was pleased with the outcome. A pair of ruffle-butt panties and a lovely head band completed the outfit
Fairy Godmother Creations did a wonderful job on my daughter Mya’s c…hristening gown. This dress is so special to me. I wore this dress on my wedding day and I was 4 months pregnant with my daughter Mya. I love this dress and what they did with it. We got so many compliments. This dress will be in our family forever!
