A Beautiful Transformation

I was recently commissioned to make a christening gown using the mom's wedding dress.  That's my friend, Eboni, not the mom, holding the dress up for me!  There was no lace on the gown, just satin and chiffon.  There was also a beautiful jeweled piece on the front of the gown.
Here's the finished gown.  I used McCalls 3063 and modified the pieces a bit.  I love how it turned out.




Here is the little princess wearing her gown.
Adorable!!!!!

I stitched some of jeweled piece from the front of the  gown to the back of the bonnet.  The gown is made completely from the mom's gown.

Happy Sewing!  Thanks for visiting my blog!
