baby blessing {dress}

We blessed Button at our church on Sunday and it was a great day! I wanted to make her dress, so my mom came down and we set to work. The pattern is one that my mom used to make my blessing dress, so I'm pretty sure no one makes it anymore. :) I had my wedding dress made and so the material is left over from my wedding dress:


I altered the sleeves so they were half sleeves rather than full, then added ruffle layers down the front. It was a project, but I learned a lot.

(This is her monkey face. Blanket by Sweet Kiwi Crochet)

Sorry no tutorial since it was a pattern, but if anyone wants a tut on the ruffle layers or half sleve with ruffle, I'm happy to oblige. I also made the head band out of the same material. Happy Tuesday!

Linking up to THESE parties this week.

The dress is adorable and the baby is gorgeous! You did a really great job. I love that you used fabric from your wedding dress, it makes it so much more special... I also kept fabric from my wedding dress (my mum, sister and I each made a part of my dress, I love it) and hope to do the same thing as you one day. Cute blog by the way. I am your newest follower!

Your baby's blessing dress turned out beautifully! I love the ruffles.

How neat to have made it from the rest of the material from your wedding dress. Makes it even more special!

That's really sweet. She's beautiful. I like that you made the dress from your wedding gown material.

My mother had my daughter's baptism gown made out of her wedding gown.

I love those types of traditions.
