A few months ago, my friend Ashley approached me to ask if I could make her son's baptismal outfit. This is something that has been on my checklist for a couple years, and is such an important day for a little one, so of course I said yes! But this was no ordinary baptismal gown. Ashley wanted it created from her wedding dress. A true heirloom, and truly a challenge. It resulted in more sleepless nights and frustrated sewing moments than I care to admit, but such is the way of a new challenge, right? And we were both so pleased with the result; it was quite worth it. I hope you enjoy these photos of precious Roman in his little suit, and let me know if you'd be interested in a baptismal outfit for your little one!
I have to admit, it was very intimidating cutting up a wedding gown! I spent a lot of time looking at it, before choosing a small corner of the train to trim the puzzle pieces of the pattern out!
