Tina wanted an actual, full, formal infant boy's outfit including a tuxedo jacket with tails. We also were able to get a long gown from the fabrics, but we used nearly all the useable materials her original dress had.Marilee Scheid, her sister and mother wanted a modular outfit that would work for both a boy and girl. We created a bodice with snaps that allow for a detachable skirt and romper pants.Meaghan Milmoe sent her mother's wedding dress and some lace from her Mother-in-Law's wedding dress to have a christening gown made for her daughter. There is something very special about having your daughter wear a gown that was made from the fabrics of both her grandmothers' wedding dresses.Heather Petro had us use her wedding dress to make a christening outfit for her daughter.Paula Conway had us make this christening gown as a gift for her niece. The wedding dress did not have much embellishment so we added a little of our own lace.The original Wedding dress and heirloom robeKaryn True brought us her wedding dress to have outfits made for her granddaughter and future grandchildren. She wanted a total of three outfits from her gown. We had to cut very carefully to get all three outfits. There was literally just enough lace to be able to put it on each of the pieces. We also ended up making some pillows with the scraps.Janet Riddick sent her wedding dress to have outfits made for grandchildren. Her dress had lots and lots of ruffles. We incorporated a layer of ruffles on the christening gown. We also used some of the lovely embroidery work on both the gown and romper. A bib, booties and a cap completed the ensemble. However, we couldn't resist using some of those ruffles for a fun, decorative pillow.Click on photo to enlarge

Thought I'd share this blast from the past. A couple of year ago I made this custom doll to enter into a local competition. The rules of the competition were that we had to sew something using onlly a t-shirt, a piece of lingerie and a pillow case. I literally pulled the threads from the fabric to create her hair and she is stuffed with shredded pieces from the garments. ... See MoreSee Less

I'm really excited! Tomorrow my sister Jodie is coming to visit. We don't get to see much of each other so I'm looking forward to her visit--which means I may be distracted for a couple of days and not posting here much.

Work will still get done as I have some very talented helpers who will be working and I will be in the studio in the mornings making sure things are going forward. However, I'm planning to spend as much time with my sister as possible. Jodie is the one on the left in this picture. I'm the one in the middle. My sister Linda Jo is on the right. Our MOM made the outfits :)

Jill Maupin brought her wedding dress to us to have us make a First Communion gown for her daughter. Jill's wedding dress had some stunning bead work on it and I tried to incorporate it in a way that will work well for a 7-year-old to wear.

We also made Jill's original veil smaller. This ended up being more work than I had anticipated because we (I mean Cassie) pretty-much had to take the whole thing apart, cut it down and then re-assemble it. I was very pleased with the results thought.

In addition to the gown and veil, we made a teddy bear and a child's purse. Unfortunately, I did not get a photo of the purse.

Craig Otis and his children sent us a jacket that belonged to his wife's father who recently passed. The bear was a gift for his wife. He asked us to give it angel wings so we did. ... See MoreSee Less
