    How sweet. I think it is soooo special. So, can the gown be patched to save for her wedding too?????

    I love the sentiment of making the dress out of the dress, it makes it even more special.

    You did such a lovely job on the christening dress.... and Lily is absolutely beautiful. Now she can save it for her first child to wear. A wonderful and meaningful tradition.

    How very beautiful! I can understand your nervousness about the first cut, but end results will complement that beautiful granddaughter, Lily.

    It's wonderful to make such a pretty gown from the wedding dress, maybe embroider the baby's name and birthdate in the hem ... you can later add any brothers or sisters she may have. It's an old tradition. Lily is so sweet!

    Beautiful! I made a couple baby blessing outfits from a wedding dress (for someone else...it wasn't my wedding dress), but yes, it was still hard to make that first cut!

    What a beautiful dress for a baptism and what a wonderful place to get the fabric from. 98% of most wedding gowns are not ever worn again what a great use for it. Love it.
