Baptism Outfit From Train of Mom’s Wedding Dress

Baptism Outfit From Train of Mom's Wedding DressKristen Marshal asked us to make a baptism outfit for her daughter from the train of her wedding dress and leave as much of the dress as possible for a future Communion gown.

Happily there was plenty of fabric in the train to make baptism gown with. We did swipe a string of bead work from the bodice to put at the gown’s waist, but sent the rest of the gown back with the finished baptism outfit.

Jennifer Francisco asked us to use her wedding dress remnants to make a custom Tree Topper Angel. The lovely lace and satin made a beautiful angel. She is about 11" or so tall. i really like making the angels. It is hard to find a consistent supplier of porcelain heads though so the heads can vary quite a bit. I like this particular one even though her head is tilted. ... See MoreSee Less

Jennifer Franisco sent her wedding dress to have a baptism gown, romper combo for her future grandchildren to wear. Jennifer's dress had some lovely cut-out lace and satin with bead work. We tried to capture much of those elements in the gown with puffed sleeves and some of the beaded lace hanging over the waist. Capturing the original hem was a bit of a challenge, but worth it. For the romper, we did use some of the lace as applique on the faux vest. We also made a matching bonnet for the gown and cap for the romper and a bib.
