    It is just beautiful. Now she needs a shadow box with that christening gown along with a pic of the baby in the dress and one of mom in her wedding gown.

    I MADE MY SON'S CHRISTENING GOWN FROM MY DRESS AND I'VE NEVER REGRETTED IT. IF ANYONE HAS MADE A QUILT FROM A WEDDING DRESS I'D LOVE TO SEE IT. LUCKY BABY WITH SUCH A TALENTEDGRANDMOM.

    Gorgeous. If it's going to be passed down to others, it might help to embroider the baby's name and baptismal date on the slip for each baby that uses it.

    I did the same with my wedding dress over 40 years ago , for my daughters grown , then when her children were christened 35 years later we used it again , I made a fine cotton petticoat to go under it and embroidered their names on it it looked so lovely , and has been now put away for great grandchildern .

    Oh, what a sweet baby! I showed DH and said, "Loooook". My youngest (out of three) is 2 and though I'm happy with my herd at it's current size, I get a twinge when I see a baby. :)

    Gorgeous gown as well. You do very nice work. I don't think I could have brought myself to cut into a wedding dress but thankfully you had your DIL to persuade you. :)
