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

Linda Chung sent her late aunt's clothing to have us make bears and a pillow for her aunt's grandchildren and family. We mixed and matched the garment fabrics to make each bear different but used one garment in common for the foot pads, paw pads and ear pads.

We knew the pillow was going to an adult male so we mostly used the red fabrics instead of the pinks. One shirt had a playboy bunny graphic that we broke up into four pieces and turned into appliques for one side of the pillow.

Linda Conroy found us through Etsy. She sent her wedding dress to have us make our Gown, Romper combo. Linda's WD was made of a soft satin with cut-away lace and bead work. It was a challenge to keep the original hem line because the hem was mostly on a curve. However, with careful planning, we were able to do so.

I don't normally like to put a lot of bead work on the bodice because it becomes a challenge to clean. However, since it was the smaller, princess style, we kind of went all-out.

For the romper, we pulled some of the lace to put on the faux vest. This soft satin makes a lovely romper. The combo included a matching bonnet and we also made a bib.

Ingrid Vezina sent her wedding dress to have us make a christening gown for her daughter. The wedding dress was very ornate with embroidery and bead work in layers. I didn't get a photo of the back of the dress and should have because it was multiple layers of bead work and embroidery. The fabrics were also very heavy. In order to capture some of the lovely bead work, I had to really cut with precision. I wanted to keep the gown from getting too heavy and that required taking the panels apart and using the thin under layer as lining. In addition to the gown, we made a matching bonnet, head band, dialper cover and bear.

Gail Goldsberry sent her wedding dress from 1982 to have us make a christening outfit for her granddaughter. Gail's dress had a few stain issues but we were able to work with the materials available. This high-quality satin and corded lace made such a lovely little gown. We also made a headband, matching booties and a protective bib.
