My niece has a baby girl and her mum, my sister, wanted to turn the wedding dress into a christening robe. This is the second one that we have done. ( The first was for my sister's older daughter)

When she first had the idea, she couldn't find a professional who was game to cut into a wedding dress, so she asked me.

We used a (terrible) simplicity pattern and my sister winced everytime I cut into the dress. But it turned out well.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
