The request came: will you make my wedding gown into a christening outfit?
I photographed the gown and then gently deconstructed it.
I cleaned part of the lace and fabric to see if it was safe and if it made a difference.
The Christening outfit, boxed and ready for delivery, was debuted in late December. Today I cut out a Christening gown, 2 bride’s hankies, and an extra surprise.
This project delights me, taking a good garment and the memories of a celebration and regenerating both cloth and joy. Blessings on those who celebrate.
