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!

I actually took a pair of scissors to my own wedding gown! I must admit my heart went into my throat and I understood how our mommies feel when they bring us their gowns. I wanted my girls to have a piece of my gown as a remembrance so I created these Christmas ornaments for them.

We just love finding new things to do with wedding gowns, especially when there is very little left after creating our christening outfits. We sometimes laugh because people seem to think because baby’s clothes are so small and the gowns are so big there should be lots of fabric left over–not so!!! You’d be surprised how much fabric it takes, especially for the little rompers for boys. Anyway, here’s a great DIY project for your gown. If you’re not into DIY, contact us to do it for you!

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!
