Colin’s vested romper was created using the back of mom’s wedding gown so that the front could be saved in case someday a girl’s gown is needed. 🙂 We used some of the appliques to embellish the vest. Dad wanted a baseball cap instead of the usual bonnet. The bib was machine embroidered on the front with a cross and on the back with Colin’s initials. His shoes had the christening date embroidered on the bottom of one sole. The fabric in the gown was dupioni silk which gives it a beautiful sheen but wrinkles easily. We’ve been promised pics!

Mom’s gown came to us as lace covered satin, with silver embelishments, including little silver faux buttons. Instead of doing the “usual” with the lace on the bottom, we placed the lace on the bodice, with just the lace on the puffy sleeves. Since the bottom would be a little plain compared to the bodice, the beautiful silver trim from her veil became the silver trim on the bottom of the dress. This was handstitched on with invisible thread! The bonnet had the lace trim and the shoes were done in lace covered satin with the date of the christening embroidered on the bottom.
