Saving Grace

Grace brought us her mother's gown, wanting to include her memory into this special day for her daughter. The gown was in pretty good shape, just a little discolored but it gave the christening outfit even more dimension. We used the bottom of the gown for the sleeves and placed some of the sweet little flowers on the bodice. We often, when we can, remove appliques and move them around. Many times we have to re-apply appliques, beading and sequins. We try to keep to the design of the gown when we can. Grace also ordered a diaper cover, shoes and headband to complete the look! The memento pillow is for her. It has her parents names and wedding date embroidered on the back along with the ribbon from their ring bearer pillow.
