    Here is a picture of Lily and her mommy. Lily is wearing the dress and jacket I made from her mom's wedding gown. If you look closely you will see the little braclet that her mommy made from the beads we took off the dress to sew it. Mommy has a matching bracelet.

    What a wonderful gift. I have planned this for my dress just not quiet there to cut it. Maybe it is because my kids are too young to have babies :)

    Beautiful dress, baby and family. I have a feeling that you'll be sewing a few more dresses for your granddaughter before she's all grown up. God bless you all.

    My mother married in 1950 and had a beautiful dress. I took the train off the dress when I altered it in 1984 for my sister to wear at her wedding. I had the train cleaned (lots of fabric) and am now planning on making a Christening dress for the soon to be born great grandaughter. I hope mine turns out as well as yours.

    Isn't that the truth. Thank you everyone for the nice comments. I was very happy with how everything turned out.

    Absolutely beautiful! The dress is gorgeous too!! :)
    I was hoping to do the same for my daughter when she was born. She is now two and daughter number two is on the way. I am still planning on it...I was only planning on using the stole that came with the dress...not sure if I will be able to get an infant dress and something for a two-year old out of it. :/ Wish me luck!
    You did a fantastic job on the dress and she will treasure it when she is older! Both of the children are beautiful!
    :)

    Now that is a gift to cherish. When we were in Ireland, Belfast we found an extroidinary fabric shop and bought some Irish linen and 15 yrds of Irish Lace and made our grandaughter to be and embroirdered it with the families initials and pur her name and date of birth on the hem of the slip. When she was born we took it with us to Arizona, gave it to my son and his wife. That was the last time we saw it. She sold it at a yard sale and said her girls didn't need that kind of "finery"
    Dress, Slip, Bonnet and booties, all sold.
