My friend and neighbor, Tanya, is an extremely talented seamstress. So, I asked her if she would be willing to use the fabric, lace and beads from my wedding gown to create a Christening gown for Baby Zoey. She did and what an amazing dress it is!!! This is a close up for the beading. The beading on my wedding gown was hand sewn, so when Tanya removed the lace, each tiny little bead had to be hand sewn back on to the gown!
This is the intricate bottom of the dress. Won't it look so sweet on my little punkin'? This is the detailing at the top of the dress. Although Zoey is only 8 months old, she is fitting into a 2T, which is the size she made this gown!
Here it is. I should dig up a pic of me in my wedding gown to show you how the dress orignially looked. There is still plenty of material left. I'm thinking about saving it for a Communion dress for Lily.
