Baby Carlie

I hope everyone had a fabulous Mothers Day!
For me, Mother's Day 2012 began on Friday morning when I went to drop off my latest project,
Baby Carlie's Christening outfit. 
It was made from the train of her Mother's wedding gown.

I love the fact that her Mom saved the picture of her wedding gown
that she tore out of the bridal magazine at the salon almost 15 years ago.

Carlie's has three older brothers ages; 12, 8 and 2.  Her mom has been waiting 14 years for this little princess to arrive.  She has told me that since the day she was married she dreamed about having a daughter
and having her wedding gown made into the christening gown. 

This was such a fun project to complete.
I really enjoyed removing the lace from the hem of her train and
 reworking it for Carlie's Christening Gown and Blanket.

Her Mother also requested that I make a Monogramed Christening Blanket.

Above are a few detail shots of her blanket

When Chris opened the box that contained Carlie's Christening Gown
her eyes filled with tears.
It was an amazing moment to watch her face light up and hear her reminisce about buying her wedding gown and talk about how she dreamed of having a daughter who would be able to wear a Christening gown made from her Wedding dress.
This Mother's day I was able to help make one mom's dream become a reality.
Life doesn't get much better than that :)

Interested in having a dress like this made for your little one ... email me at:
