Before and After


I've been wanting to re-use clothing for quite some time now. In fact, it's probably been 2 years or so. This bereavement gown set was made from an old pageant gown from my mom's attic. It's made in loving memory of my friend's daughter, Trinity. I wanted to have it done for her 5th birthday, but didn't make it. That seems to be my standard these days....a day late and a dollar short.

Anyway, I think it turned out nice. I'm going to pair it up with a blanket donated to Emmazing Grace. I'm emailing pictures of it to Teresa, a Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep photographer that has requested some boy gowns. I know this isn't what she needs right now, but I think it would be beautiful in portraits.
Note: After a quick search, I can't find the pageant gown before I cut it...too tired to keep looking tonight. Austin's been ugly to his mommy the last 2 nights.
