Samantha Seibert sent her wedding dress to have a christening outfit made for her first child She wanted a unisex gown but was open to us being a little creative. Her wedding dress was covered in thin strips of chiffon at angles. We decided to take a couple of them and add them to the bottom of the christening gown. We also used some of the lovely bead work on the collar.

Linda Lotton wanted two complete christening outfits made from her wedding dress. Her dress was not very large so we augmented her fabrics just a little in order to get the two full outfits. Each set consisted of a christening gown, boy’s romper, boy’s cap and a headband. Olga and I were pleased with the results–and so was Linda.
