Our newest mommy came to us with a gown that was elegant and understated. It was made of silk dupioni with a white satin underlay, quite beautifully made with a pleated skirt. We chose to make baby’s gown the same way, with a pleated skirt and to give it a little interest, used the white satin for the sleeve band, the waistband, sash and shoes. The bonnet was also created with pintucks and we embellished the brim with the white satin as well. We usually advise ties for small babies so it can be pulled in if necessary and still be big enough for a sister who might be bigger. God bless!

A customer that we had made a romper for from her wedding gown 2 years ago returned to us with the remnants of what was leftover. We had tried to save as much as we could. She had imagined we would be making a gown for a daughter. Instead she had another son so we made a different romper but with a detachable skirt for “when” she has her daughter. We also created a boys “Messenger” cap and a bonnet. We did have to supplement the skirt with satin material for the underskirt. The overlay was from her gown. There’s not much left but the bodice and the overlay! A special medal was sewin into the outfit. Today we spoke to another one of our mommies who will be sending the remainder of her gown for a romper to be made for her brand new son. We love you all!

Continuing on with the updates….Mom sent us this gorgeous gown to create a christening dress, headband, shoes and panties for Gabriella. Mom chose puffy sleeves, which we created out of the chiffon and a thinner headband because of all her hair. We couldn’t have asked for a better model!

Our customer brought us her daughter’s wedding gown and asked us to create a christening gown and as a memento of her wedding, a pillow with her wedding date embroidered on the back. We used a 12″ x 12″ new pillow form, the fabric, lace and embellishment from the wedding gown to create this wonderful pillow. The pillow was given as a birthday present and the gown will be given at her daughter’s baby shower on May 31st, so stay tuned!

Twin boys! Adorable didn’t come close to describing them! Mom had 2 wedding dresses to work with. From one we took fabric to make the shoes and bibs and from the other their matching christening gowns. The top was tuxedo shirt-like and the bottom was a pleated gown. Mom chose the traditional full brim hats. The shoes are embroidered with the christening date while the bib was embroidered with a cross.We can’t wait to get pictures of them!

Our newest creation. Mom said it looked like a miniature of her wedding dress! We removed a few to use on the shoes & panties. The panties are pictured before we put in the elastic, we were waiting for measurements. Mom had a flower she used in her hair which we transformed into a gorgeous headband for the baby. Unfortunately, forgot to take a picture of it!

From beautifully adorned gown and veil we created a christening gown, bonnet and shoes. Mom wanted the bottom of the skirt to be used with it’s satin band and appliques and the beadwork in the gown bodice for babie’s bodice. We used the veil  and decorative beadwork to create sheer decorative sleeves.

 
We tried something new, adorning the covered satin buttons with beads & “bling”. Mom decided on ballet type shoes, which we adorned with beading from the veil. We also used the beaded bodice to create the bonnet.
