Kate's Christening

Baby Kate's mom sent us her wedding gown as well as her late mother's wedding veil with lace. She was hoping we could make a coat for over the christening gown with the veil but the netting was too frail. We took off the lace and applied it over the organza overlay of her gown. We also used it to embellish the diaper cover, bib and bonnet. The bib will be used by her nephew, who is going to be christened the same day as her daughter. The shoes were fashioned out of fabric from the gown's bodice. She requested ties for the back so it could possible be used for a smaller child and a Peter Pan collar, which we made out of the organza. These shoes were the largest I have made so far!!
