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.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
