First Communion Gown from Mom’s Wedding Dress

SodanoM02Jolene Sodano wanted to have her daughter’s First Communion dress designed using the remnants of her wedding dress. We had already created a christening gown for her youngest daughter from the dress.

Although there was quite a bit of material to use, we did have to augment it to get the overall look we were after. Jolene gave us a year to create this outfit. I was able to use that time to find just the right trims, laces and matching satins to get the gown that her daughter dreamed of being able to wear.

To be honest, I felt like I was shipping off a personal masterpiece.

 

The long gown had spaghetti straps that were covered in beads with a beaded belt.

We added a bolero jacket to conform with the Church's requirement that shoulders be covered
