Eliana - Sweetness in Lace
Mom's gown came to us as lace covered satin, with silver embelishments, including little silver faux buttons. Instead of doing the "usual" with the lace on the bottom, we placed the lace on the bodice, with just the lace on the puffy sleeves. Since the bottom would be a little plain compared to the bodice, the beautiful silver trim from her veil became the silver trim on the bottom of the dress. This was handstitched on with invisible thread! The bonnet had the lace trim and the shoes were done in lace covered satin with the date of the christening embroidered on the bottom.
