Andrea Mayer wanted two Christening outfits from her wedding dress for her two daughters (ages 2 and 6 months).

This project was challenging for Cassie and I. Andrea's dress had some lovely lace over a mauve sheer with an under slip. Because this was more of a fit/flare/mermaid style wedding dress, we had to rely on the fullness of the bottom of the skirt for the bulk of the materials for the two gowns. Once we got into the project we realized that the WD seemed to have a seam every six inches and many of the seams were going the wrong direction for our needs. I felt like I needed an engineering degree to get these skirts to flow right, but was happy with the final results.

Patricia Hayes sent her wedding dress to have this christening outfit made for her daughter.

Her wedding dress had some lovely mesh with lace and bead work. We decided to try and capture some of the original WD concept in the skirt of the christening gown but using the split panel down the front. In order to do that and end up with the lace on the full hem, we ended up making the back of the skirt just a tad longer than the front--kind of mimicking the train of the original dress.

For the bodice of the gown, we decided to have the lace hang lightly over the waist to help add to the flow of the gown and the sleeves are made just of the lace mesh.

In addition to the gown, we made a matching bonnet and a couple of embroidered kerchiefs.

Teresa Tomlinson sent her mother's wedding dress to have a ceremonial robe and romper made for her son to wear at his upcoming christening. The gown had some lovely older lace and pearl beads. We used some of the lace and beads on the faux vest of the romper and we were able to split the cascade of lace from the train of the wedding dress to put on the front of the robe going down both sides. We also added a label with her grandson's name and baptism date to the inside hem of the robe.

In addition to the robe and romper, we made a boy's cap, protective bib and matching booties. Other accessories we made for family members included a tooth fairy pillow, several gathered rose corsages, and a couple of boutonnieres.
