Here is the Christening outfit made from that beautiful gown! (see post on November 16, 2014).
Satin, lace and trim all from the wedding gown. The sole button from the gown was used to secure the neck in the back. Trim at waistline came from trim under the bust line. All I added were 2 hooks, a snap and the ribbon at the jacket neckline.
Satin trim on jacket is from the lacing on the back of the wedding gown.
Beaded trim on jacket front was originally around armholes on gown.
