Gown of Generations

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.
