Her wedding dress was covered in lace so we tried to really bring out the lace in each project. We made an ornate, unisex gown using the lovely older satin from the WD and created a lacy robe to go over it. We also made bib, diaper cover, kerchief, headband and a petal rose corsage.
Dolores Frost sent her wedding dress to have us make a romper for her son’s upcoming baptism and a gown for future children. Her gown had some lovely embroidered mesh and bead work. We used the mesh on both the gown and on the romper vest.
We also made a pair of matching booties and a gathered rose corsage from the wedding dress.
Chantel Bailey sent her wedding dress to have a romper made for her son. Since her dress had some lovely panels of purple, we made a romper with a faux vest and used the purple on the vest. When it was done, it just seemed like a matching bow tie pin was called for. We also made a reversible bib.
Chantel also asked if I could make the bodice of her dress into a decorative pillow. I tried to keep it as close to the shape of the bodice as I could.
Megan McCullough sent her wedding dress to have this outfit made for her daughter and future children’s christenings. We kept the bodice relatively plain, but had to incorporate the beautiful embroidery and bead work in the skirt. We also made a boy’s bonnet and a girl’s bonnet as well as a bib. The final touch was a stemmed petal rose.
Christina Snavely wanted us to make a unisex christening outfit from her wedding dress for her son and any future children and grandchildren. We made a unisex gown in our “Bishop” style with a large collar. She wanted a long gown and we couldn’t get the length from her dress as one piece so I added a horizontal contrast hem. We also made booties, bonnet and a protective bib.
This gown and robe ensemble was made from Lindsay Roy’s “grandmomer’s” wedding dress. Lindsay wanted a family heirloom to pass on to future generations once her son used it. We made a unisex gown and a robe that allowed us to take advantage of the lace from the WD. We also made a unisex bonnet and bib as well as two 14″ teddy bears
Cathy Peterson sent her wedding dress to have a baptism ensemble made for her grandchildren. She chose to get our gown/romper combo that includes a girl’s gown, a boy’s romper and a head piece. We also made a ring pillow and kerchief.
Her WD had a limited amount of satin that we used on the bodice of the gown and for the faux vest on the romper. This ensemble took just about every square useable inch of the wedding dress.
