Kristen sent the train from her wedding dress to have a romper made for her son. The train had some beautiful embroidery and bead work on it so we used some of that on the faux vest to make a formal little man suit.

This was a situation where the outfit initially ended up being too big so Kristen sent it back and we were able to bring the size in for a better fit. Although we try hard to get the size as accurate as we can, we always try to make sure that there is enough time to make emergency adjustments (which are done at no additional cost).

Dear Liane,

Thank you so much for the beautiful christening romper you made for my son Gaetano out of my wedding dress train. It was absolutely beautiful and fit him so nicely! He received so many compliments on his outfit on the day of his christening. It will be such a nice heirloom to hand down to him one day. I have attached a picture of him in his outfit that you may use on your website. Thank you again!

Thank you again. Kristen

Janice sent most of her mother's wedding dress to have us make special Christmas ornaments from it for friends and family. The dress was made from a lovely older satin but the satin was too heavy to wrap over a foam ball like our normal ornaments so we had to come up with a different option. I chose this star option because it allowed us to hi-light the satin. We did add some lace for contrast and our own sparkle buttons at the center. The final ornaments were very elegant.

Ok, I shared my first draft dragon so it seems only fitting to share the version done for the customer. The garment was her husband's jacket. I had two fabrics to work with from the original jacket a dark blue denim and a looser wove cotton plaid.

Neither of these fabrics were ideal for this kind of detail work, but I decided the plaid would make a more interesting fabric for the main body of the dragon and the dark blue would be good accent. I made some adjustments to the original pattern to accommodate the fabrics and I'm really pleased with how this guy turned out. I had my assistant Meagan helping me on the production.

Roberta sent her wedding dress to have several gift pillows made for loved ones. Her dress had quite a bit of tulle and we tried to incorporate just a touch in the pillows by using it over the satin in a couple of places. Each pillow has just a touch of each of the primary materials from the dress.

Jama Badinghaus brought her wedding dress to us to have a christening outfit made for her daughter. Jama's dress was made for her by someone close to her and she wanted to continue the tradition of something custom made with the materials.

We chose to use the lovely satin for the bodice and put emphasis on the lace for the sleeves and skirt. These truly were lovely fabrics to work with. In the end, I decided a sash with just a dash of added sparkle would finish it off nicely. We also made a matching headband using the organza from the original bodice.
