Chicago Bound

Our newest mom contacted us with a request for a specific looking romper with a detachable skirt. She sent her gown ups with 2 shamrocks representing twins she had lost. Mom wanted them to be a part of this very special day. Unfortunately, something happened to the package, which was shipped UPS between Chicago and my home in NJ. Fortunately the dress was unharmed but the shamrocks and the order form she sent were missing. This is the first time this has ever happened with shipping but we use the US Post Office anyway. We cut out and placed just one small applique on the bodice of the romper, hand stitching it on. The overlay of the skirt we recreated in the christening skirt and used the bodice detail as the waistband of the skirt. Buttons were placed on the romper waistband and buttonholes in the skirt waistband. At a meeting with a new customer who saw this outfit decided she wanted the same for her son and another who we had already met with saw it and wanted to change her outfit to the same. We're very pleased (and so was mom) with the outcome.

The christening outfit arrived and I can't thank you enough. I absolutely love the romper and skirt. I can't wait for Kevin to wear it this weekend. I am so glad I found you guys online and can't thank you enough for your responsiveness and turnaround time on top of putting together exactly what we were looking for from a conversion.

Thank you for going above and beyond everything else and including the shamrocks. Knowing that our Riley and Aiden will be a part of Kevin's special day means more than I can tell you

With gratitude,
