Maximizing the Materials
Colleen wanted to get as much from her wedding dress as possible. When you only have one, sometimes it makes sense to think about the future. We made her future grandchildren a unisex gown with a ceremonial robe. That allows her family to use the outfit for any child/granchild/great grandchild. In addition, we made a boy’s confirmation tie, a bib, three kerchiefs, a pretty headband and a coursage pin that incorporated a bit of each of the major elements of her wedding dress as a keepsake.
I just wanted to follow up on my son’s baptism and share my thoughts on your work.
Words cannot describe how thrilled I was to see my son wearing my wedding gown on his christening day! You and your team did a BEAUTIFUL job maintaining the character of my gown while also creating something that will work for either a boy or a girl. I am especially grateful for your patience and vision since I really had no idea what I wanted! You have created an heirloom for our family and I can’t wait to pass this stunning creation down to my children and grandchildren. I was also really happy with the other items you created, including the handkerchiefs for my sons’ future weddings (hopefully!), my son’s communion tie, the flower headband and my flower pin. All have special meaning to me and I can’t wait to pass them down!
I have already shared your name with so many people. Best of luck and thank you for creating such a beautiful heirloom!! You are a gem! Thanks for sharing your talents!
