Gifts That Tie Generations Together

Grandmother’s Wedding Dress Converted to Gifts

OconnorK gownrobe01webKathleen O’Connor sent her wedding dress from 1956 to have a number of Christmas gifts made, including a unisex christening outfit for her grandchildren and great grand children to use.

Her wedding dress was covered in lace so we tried to really bring out the lace in each project.  We made an ornate, unisex gown using the lovely older satin from the WD and created a lacy robe to go over it.  We also made  bib, diaper cover, kerchief, headband and a petal rose corsage.
