    Default Not a Quilt

    I've always wanted to have my wedding gown made into a baptism gown, I even bought a pattern, but never could make the first cut. In looking on Etsy I found a lady who specializes in it so I sent it to her. It was costly but I love the finished gown. I haven't been brave enough to ask my daughter in law if she would like to use it, I will approach it next week. Pray for me.

    That is a gorgeous gown, both of them. My wedding gown got ruined in a flood a long time ago I so wish I had some of the fabric, but my DH didn't want our boys dressed in gowns they had little tiny suits!! So glad you took the step I'm sure your DIL will be pleased to use it. Praying that she will understand how much it would mean to you.

    The dress of Baptism is beautiful, your dress was fabulous and you were radiant, but do not look bad if you daughter-in-law does not want it, sometimes the young people see things different from us and I say it from experience and that I have daughters but sometimes they think that they are right and must leave them, but I wish that their wishes are fulfilled

    My daughters 1st wedding gown came with a shawl (long rectangle wrap) type, she didn't like that part, so I cut it up and added beading and lace from my wedding gown and made jewelry wrap holder thingys for when you travel. She put a piece of jewelry in each of the holders for her bridesmaids.

    The baptism gown is BEAUTFIUL !

    Robin, that is the sweetest idea. I am impressed and in awe with the sentimentality of your idea. It is an absolutely beautiful baptism gown. I cannot imagine that your daughter in law will not be touched and in love with the beautiful gown. How very special. I do wish you luck and hope you will update us. BTW, your wedding picture is gorgeous, and you were a beautiful bride!

    My DIL is from Holland. Her family has a baptismal gown that all the grandchildren have worn. When DS & DIL were stationed in Anchorage, Alaska, her parents flew over for GS's baptismal service. They brought the gown with them. It made the occasion juste that much more special. Your wedding gown was beautiful, & so is the baptismal gown.
