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!

Our newest mom contacted us with a request for a specific looking romper with a detachable skirt. She sent her gown ups with 2 shamrocks representing twins she had lost. Mom wanted them to be a part of this very special day. Unfortunately, something happened to the package, which was shipped UPS between Chicago and my home in NJ. Fortunately the dress was unharmed but the shamrocks and the order form she sent were missing. This is the first time this has ever happened with shipping but we use the US Post Office anyway. We cut out and placed just one small applique on the bodice of the romper, hand stitching it on. The overlay of the skirt we recreated in the christening skirt and used the bodice detail as the waistband of the skirt. Buttons were placed on the romper waistband and buttonholes in the skirt waistband. At a meeting with a new customer who saw this outfit decided she wanted the same for her son and another who we had already met with saw it and wanted to change her outfit to the same. We’re very pleased (and so was mom) with the outcome.



The christening outfit arrived and I can’t thank you enough. I absolutely love the romper and skirt. I can’t wait for Kevin to wear it this weekend. I am so glad I found you guys online and can’t thank you enough for your responsiveness and turnaround time on top of putting together exactly what we were looking for from a conversion.

Thank you for going above and beyond everything else and including the shamrocks. Knowing that our Riley and Aiden will be a part of Kevin’s special day means more than I can tell you

With gratitude,
Katie

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.

Just ask anyone who owns couture! We are constantly amazed at how the wedding gowns we work with are constructed. Amazing what the industry gets away with. Not only the construction, but the alterations which we know our customers pay dearly for! Not many brides get “up close and personal” with their wedding gowns the way we do when we construct their christening outfits. We are picky, picky, picky in the construction of our products.

Coming soon! Our website!!

This beautiful tiered gown was used to create the shorter version of our christening gowns. Mom only wanted one of the tiers to be used as the skirt.

The edging of the lace was used to create the bonnet for a coordinated look.
 
 Mom wanted the top to be plain so as not to detract from the beautiful lace bottom. We hope we’ll get pictures of baby wearing the outfit!

Just picked up, the latest in our line of boy’s christening outfits. Lace from mom’s dress was used on the hat and vest along with the satin from mom’s gown. The satin band around the gown was used in making the bow tie. Mom had purchased extra fabric when she bought her gown so there will be plenty of fabric to make a girl’s gown could be made sometime down the road.
