Christening Outfits from Two Grandmas’ Wedding Dresses
Mary Furman sent her wedding dress and her daughter’s mother-in-law’s wedding dress to have a christening outfit made for their first grandchild. The wedding dresses were both very different and mixing the different materials was a challenge, but we were pleased with the results.
For the gown, we used the satin from the MIL WD on the bodice and sleeves and added some lacey applique from Mary’s WD. The skirt used the lining fabric from the MIL WD and an overlay of organza and ace from Mary’s WD.
The booties used the satin and lining fabrics from the MIL WD and we appliqued some flowers from Mary’s WD.
The panties used the lining fabric from the MIL WD and were decorated with some accordion organza from Mary’s WD.
