A wedding is planned for over several months, or years. It lasts for one very (hopefully) happy day and then the flowers are dried and hung, the presents are opened and used, or regifted. The dress is hung at the back of a closet or preserved, never to be seen again. I always thought the dress was the best part of the whole day and it was sad it wouldn't be reused. These items have been made out of various wedding dresses or special occasion clothes.
This Baptism dress was made out of my wedding dress.
This is the same dress as above on my older daughter.
This outfit was made with new fabrics with buttons from the same wedding dress that was turned into the above Baptism dress. The rest of the dress will be made into a baby girl blessing dress in the future.
These baptism pants were remade from a pair of ordinance pants
This outfit used fabric from the train of a wedding dress for the pants and the buttons on the vest are also from the dress. It has new fabrics for the shirt and vest. The rest of the dress will be turned in a baptism dress to be used next November.
