Wedding Dress Becomes Lovely Bishop Style Christening Gown

CG-McGillK-bishop style christening gownKaren McGill brought her wedding dress to us to have an outfit made for her grandchild. We made a unisex bishop style gown and then added an overlay/robe. Many of the gowns we receive from the 1970s and 1980s have some beautiful surface materials but use a stiff lining fabric that does not work as well for infant wear. We can use the fabric, but will often suggest switching it out for a softer fabric. With this outfit, we used a bright white to help accentuate the lovely translucent overlay, embroidered lace and bead work.
