Gifts That Tie Generations Together

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.
