So, last weeks challenge was one of my all time favourites. Cut up Mums wedding dress to make a christening robe and headband. This time it was twin girls who were just the best babies to measure and try on, super cute just adorable.
Oh its that time of year ….. love seeing all the Christmas party dresses.
This ladies favourite cashmere cardigan saved with suedette elbow patches.
Good to re purpose clothes, changed this black dress to a bubble hem skirt.
Last week’s dress transformation … was stressy but it worked out well, added sleeves and a skirt as it was way too short.
Custom Made waistcoat and bow tie made for one very lucky teen to wear on a cruise … must admit I do love this one.
Christening Robe – this is something I always love to make but this dress had to incorporate quite a few other special outfits. The waist sash included pieces from Daddy’s christening robe, Nana’s wedding outfit & Godmummy/Auntie Jennie’s bridesmaid dress and the main dress was made from Mummy’s wedding dress ! x We also had…
From wedding gown to christening gown, I love making these, I altered the wedding gown ten years ago and now it was back to be cut up.
Little Easter Dresses … orders being taken lots of fabric to choose from or supply your own, from £30 each The Disney print dress was clients own fabric for her little girls trip to Disney.
Embroidered polo shirts …. kingfisher blue on navy blue, blue on grey – very smart for work wear.
You can never have too much sparkle … look at this transformation.
A clients dress, made into a skirt and a matching top made from the existing wrap.

This was a full length Maggie Sottero gown with a train, which was altered to a short “50”s style dress to show off the brides wonderful hot pink shoes, the bridesmaid dress was made to match !
