Jamie sent her wedding dress to have a unisex outfit made. Her gown was made of a very heavy satin with beautiful lace work all over it. It also had a long string of buttons down the back all the way down the train. We ended up using the lining material for the Bishop style gown but ran a row of buttons down the front and gave it a nice big bib collar so that we could use some of the lace. The robe is lined and has a ribbon front closure.

Liane, the outfit arrived today – it is truly more beautiful than I even imagined! I actually don’t know if I loved it more as a wedding dress or love it more as a baptismal gown and robe! I will absolutely send you a picture of Oliver in it on his big day in a couple of weeks. What an amazing family heirloom this will be. Thank you, thank you, thank you.¬†Jamie

Martina Slone sent us her wedding dress to have a 36" x 48" blanket made from it. Here dress was a lot of organza and lace--which aren't exactly blanket materials. We chose to overlay the lace and organza on the lining fabrics and then back and bind the whole thing with a soft, white satin. ... See MoreSee Less

Amanda Boardman sent her wedding dress to have a unisex christening gown made for her daughter and future children. The heavy satin of her wedding dress worked well with our bishop style gown and we even were able to use some of the bling :)

Cheryl Haring wanted a little man's outfit made from her wedding dress. Our boy's romper, jacket and bow tie pin combo allowed us to use the lovely satin from her wedding dress with just a touch of the lace as well. In addition to the outfit, we made a ring pillow for the future.

Marsha McKenna sent two of her late mother's sweaters to have a couple of non-jointed memory bears made. These were the most ornately beaded sweaters I've ever seen. We wanted to capture some of the flavor of the bead work in each bear but the bead work was mostly along the outer edges of the fabric so it was challenging to incorporate. ... See MoreSee Less
