I was going through my fabric [how I love to go through my fabric]
and came across some scraps from my oldest sister, Ashley's wedding dress.
There wasn't enough to use as is, but I looked at the beautifully embroidered bits and had an idea.
Wouldn't it be a perfect way to use those scraps in a blessing dress?
And she just happens to be expecting her first daughter.
I cut out the feathers and sewed them down the front on a sheer overlay.
Can't wait to meet Baby Girl Baker!
The wedding dress
The blessing dress is beautiful! What a great idea!ReplyDelete
What an interesting wedding dress. I'm sure she will love the blessing dress. I love a thoughtful gift! Way to go!ReplyDelete
Looking through my old fabric always serves as a reminder of what I am letting sit untouched. It doesn't inspire me like it does you. Perhaps I need an attitude adjustment...
Fun fun fun! I love the feather coming off the shoulder. What did Ashley say about it?ReplyDelete
Ann-I believe her exact words were: I'm so glad it's not long and floofy. :)ReplyDelete
