We so much love getting photos from our mommies and don’t we dress some of the most adorable babies?? Thanks so much for sharing your pics! Shannon’s mother-in-law commissioned us from California to create this outfit from her wedding gown.

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!

   Our favorite part of creating these one of a kind outfits is seeing the expression on Mom’s face when they see them for the first time. We

 

had a great time with Kristi’s gown, even though the beads and sequins were flying all over the place. The bottom of the gown had such wonderful lacework while the top had beautiful beadwork. We agreed with mom that with all this going onto the bottom of the gown, less was more on the top. She also wanted just some small trimwork on the bonnet and of course the shoes finished it all off. Mom was also included in a You Tube video we are trying to put together, stay tuned!

Pictures of baby Olivia in her “one of a kind” christening creation. Our thanks to mom for sending us pics of her little cutie. There was another family in the church who were impressed by her gown and asked where she got it and mom passed on our information. Thanks Jacqui!

We began this creation using mom’s beaded, appliqued and ruched wedding gown. The over layer was dupioni silk and the under layer was bridal satin.

 
The straps were given to mom by her mom so she wanted them to be used in some way in the gown or bonnet. We used the beaded bodice to make the bodice of the babie’s gown. We decided it would be best on the bonnet.
 
 
 
Mom also decided she’d like a bib, in which we used the underlayer of satin, embroidered a cross with silver and edged it all with silver binding.
