Althea requested a simple romper for her son with shoes and a messenger cap to complete the look. The romper had just a small button at the top, under the collar and short pants for the summer weather. She sent a picture to us as a sample to follow. To date these were the biggest shoes we had ever made but we we just received an order with shoes for a 1 year old.

Our mommy brought us her beautiful appliqued tulle & satin dress to create christening outfits for her twins, a boy and a girl. Of course, they’re adorable!!! For her son, we created our vested romper with snap crotch. On the vest we applied some of the appliques from her gown. For her daughter, we created a gown with a satin & tulle skirt, satin bodice, used the lacings from the back of her gown as ties and with our favorite, the puffy princess sleeves. He had a traditional boy’s bonnet with the full brim. She has an opened back bonnet which has the ability to be sized with the ribbon in the back. Because of the size of her train, we were able to create both outfits with no problem.

Mom came to us with her dream of having her son’s Christening outfit made from her gown with shoes, along with a girl’s gown and a pillow to dream on for her own special day. It was mom’s request to not only have the Christening date put on the bottom of his shoe but also embroidery little crosses on the toes. What a great idea! We also embroidered the wedding date on her pillow as a memento of her own very special day. What a great family, it was such fun to meet them…and especially “grandman” who was thrilled with the girl’s gown. We used the heavily beaded area of mom’s gown as the bodice of the gown. The embroidered train gave us lots to work with for the pillow, vest of the boy’s outfit and bottom of the gown. There was enough plain satin for all the rest.

This is Dillon’s awesome outfit and messenger cap. Mom brought a picture and wanted it copied exactly. It’s a one piece with blue trim on the middle, neck and around the sleeves. There’s an embroidered piece inside his cap from mom’s dress with her wedding date and an embroidered piece with his own christening date inside his outfit. Both were made with fabric from mom’s gown. Dillon is 9 months old and this is the largest christening outfit we’ve made so far. Mom was very happy with the results!
