Baptism Outfit made from Grandmother’s 1980s Dress

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.

First Communion Gown from Mom’s Wedding Dress

SodanoM02Jolene Sodano wanted to have her daughter’s First Communion dress designed using the remnants of her wedding dress. We had already created a christening gown for her youngest daughter from the dress.

Although there was quite a bit of material to use, we did have to augment it to get the overall look we were after. Jolene gave us a year to create this outfit. I was able to use that time to find just the right trims, laces and matching satins to get the gown that her daughter dreamed of being able to wear.

To be honest, I felt like I was shipping off a personal masterpiece.

Christmas Tree Skirt from Lovely Wedding Dress

VanderWeidets06

We made this Christmas Tree Skirt for Tifanie using the remnants of her wedding dress. We took our time on this one since she was not in a hurry. The pictures really don’t do it justice. I was very pleased with the way this came out.
