About Angel Gowns

mathewsj-sagowns01webBecause we make infant baptism outfits from wedding dresses, we receive a lot of inquiries about Angel Gowns or Infant Burial Gowns from people who have heard they can donate their wedding dress to have gowns made. I wish I and my staff had the time and resources to donate our time to making Angel Gowns. However, we simply can’t. I don’t believe this is a service I can offer for profit so I’m including a list of organizations that I have found that are still in business. Most need financial backing or volunteers more than they need the dress. If you are aware of other organizations, please let me know and I’ll add them

Note: If you can’t find an organization that will make them for free or that can use your wedding dress, I will make them at cost ($24 each for the first four and $18 each for every one after that. Plus shipping) and send them to you so you can donate them either to one of these organizations or to your local hospital. A standard wedding dress can yield 12-16 gowns depending on the types of fabric and style.

THIS Sunday is Third Sunday at Front Street and Fairy Godmother Creations WILL be open from 11a-4p. It looks to be a great event for the whole family. Many of the studios here at Front Street will be open, I'll have some snacks available along with interactive displays and information about who we are and what we do. I also have some handmade items available for sale. Come into our warm and cozy studio and say hi, have a homemade brownie (or two or three), see our view and then wander the other studios and see the wonder of art and talent that calls Front Street home.

Michelle Hunt sent us her wedding dress looking for an ornate unisex christening gown to be made for her daughter and any future children and grandchildren to wear. Her wedding dress had some stunning lace and a lot of seams to work around. We were even able to incorporate a little of the bling.

Patricia Schoeler sent a stole that belonged to her beloved aunt and she shared this note: "As kids, my sister and I could only pronounce "Moo". She was such a good sport and was known as "Auntie Moo" ever since. This is for me right now but I will pass it on to the younger kids some day." ... See MoreSee Less
