A Christening Gown for Emily
Our newest customer wanted us to use her favorite parts of her wedding gown in a christening gown for her daughter, the lacy scalloped bottom and the satin pleated knotted ribbon at the bodice. Most of our customers prefer the longer gown, but Diane preferred a shorter gown, similar to one she wore as a baby. We used the scalloped bottom on the bottom of the dress and also to dress up the bonnet. We took the ribbon off and pared it down to fit the tiny bodice of the christening gown. While we love what we do, our favorite part is the hug bonus at the end! Promised pics of Emily in her gown and hat to come, so here's our pics of the before and after gowns.
