We took mom's gown, using just the satin on the top of the dress, bell sleeves and just a hing of the bling mom had used on her gown. She did not want the ribbon she used so we created the sash and ties also from the satin undergown. An open backed bonnet helps assure a good fit for baby since it's adjustable...although Annalisa was not too happy with it. She did like her shoes and I included a picture of her wearing them. Mom decided she wanted a pillow to remember her dress. There was not much fabric left so we had to make a 10" x 10" size. On the back was embroidered their initials and the wedding date. So, not only do they have a beautiful heirloom gown to pass on but mom has a remembrance as well.
