Jan 2011 – Mary called inquiring whether I would be able to create a Christening gown from her daughter’s First Communion Dress.  I told her it would depend on how much fabric was available in the dress and the condition the fabric was in.  Fortunately, after some consultation, and deciding how we would go about achieving her goal,  I was able to make a shorter length Christening Gown for her granddaughter, using her daughter’s vintage First Communion Dress.  The material was delicate, providing a very delicate gown for her granddaughter “Brooke”

All  materials used in the Baptismal Gown were from the original dress that Mary’s daughter wore for her 1st Communion.
