Mom sent us her gown from Arizona a month ago requesting we make Millie's christening gown a miniature wedding gown. We made a few adjustments so it would be more appropriate for a baby than for a woman. The ruching was used to create the bodice, the flowers were trimmed down to a smaller size. The flowers mom used in her hair were used on a headband for Millie. The layers were trimmed down to a smaller size. And here's what mom said when she opened the box:
"The gown was just delivered to my door! I absolutely LOVE it!! It is not exactly what I had envisioned, it's way better! In my church when a baby is born they are given a blessing at church in front of the entire congregation. In this blessing the child is also "officially" given her name. This gown is what she will be blessed in, and hopefully her daughters. Millie will have three white dresses during her life, her baby blessing dress, her baptism dress (at age 8) and her wedding dress. What a wonderful treasure to be able to have this! Thank you times one hundred. There's no way I would have been able to do it myself the way you two women worked your magic.
