Do you have a wedding dress collecting dust and don't know what to do with it? I can make your dress into a beautiful baptismal gown for your baby or grandchild!
This listing is for a custom made christening gown, made from your own wedding dress. This dress is only a sample, of what type of dress you can have made from your wedding dress. Most times I can make the baby gown look just like your wedding dress!
I've added what the wedding gown looked like before I transformed it. The bonnet was made from the cuffs from the wedding dress. There is a close up of the wedding gown bodice to show the details of how I made the bodice on the christening gown. The puffy sleeves were made from the wedding dress sleeves.
No other fabric was used in making this dress.
Dresses should be clean, as I use the bottom of the dress for the skirt part on the baby's gown. If it is dirty, I will still use it, you will just have to have it cleaned then.
The price includes a headband or bonnet or no bonnet, which is left up to you, please indicate if you want one.
Please contact me before purchasing, as I will have to have several pictures of your dress. I will need a front and back picture, bodice picture, and any detailing on the dress. Please send the pictures when inquiring.
If there is not enough of your gown to make a dress, other fabrics and, or, lace will be added, at extra cost.
What ever is left of your gown, will all be returned to you.
Please allow 4-6 weeks for making your custom made christening gown.
Rush orders of less than 4-6 weeks to complete, please add $100.00 to the price. I will make up a custom listing for your gown.
All dresses will have to be mailed to me and you are responsible for shipping to me.
Please put dress in some sort of plastic to prevent water damage on shipping. I will not be responsible for damaged dresses being shipped to me.
If you do not have a gown you may also use a veil if it is made out of fabric or I can make one from cotton or satin fabrics.
Please note this is just a sample dress and not included in this sale.
