I must say, I’m partial to the Heirloom Dress Division of Style for Grace. Don’t get me wrong, I love the little girls dresses, the wedding dresses and alterations, but I’m tickled when someone hires us to recreate their wedding dress for their child or grandchild! And that’s what Family P asked us to do for their precious Baby G.
This post would run a mile long if I took you through the whole process in this one entry, so instead, I’m going to share Family P/Baby G’s heirloom dress experience over a 3-part series.
The first part for any heirloom dress creation is for us to examine the garment in its current form. Take a look at this wedding dress…
Can you say a-may-zing? I love the lace, the ruching and the sheath cut. It has the perfect combination of classic and sexy. Once we see the dress the brainstorming begins! This wedding dress will be re-purposed for Baby G’s baptism. Baby G’s mommy told us to create a baptism gown that was classic and simple.
I can tell you that within seconds of beginning the sketch process, I know I want to incorporate the lace and the ruching.
