Cindy Gresham sent her wedding dress to have a baptism outfit made for her coming grandchild and future grandchildren to wear.

Cindy's dress was made of lovely satin and chiffon with corded lace on the bodice. The original dress had the chiffon over all of the satin but I thought the satin was pretty and should have a chance to shine so I designed the skirt to use the chiffon in a soft, split panel that allowed the satin to peak through.

We also made a couple of kerchiefs, a bouquet sash and a corsage.
