As some of you know, we had B baptized a few weeks ago. I credit Pinterest for a lot of my craftiness leading up to the event, but also got the opportunity to work with a great local business. I always had big plans for my wedding dress. I'm not the type of girl to spend a ton of money on a dress, wear it once, and then preserve it in a box under my bed for the rest of eternity. So, I decided-long before ever having children-that my dress would be fashioned into something for the future baby. Initially I was drawn to bassinet bedding, then reality hit that I would never be the girl that owned a bassinet. So, plan B. Baptism outfits!
I had this beautiful Maggie Sottero dress that was champagne with burgundy accents, perfect for piecing together a little mans outfit. I searched around and came in contact with a lovely woman named Gemma. Not only was she able to deconstruct my corseted wedding gown, she was able to piece it into a fantastic 3 piece outfit for B! Shirt, pants, a vest, and probably the most adorable bow tie you've ever seen! She was able to do it in my meager 3 week time-frame and for a VERY reasonable price!
Needless to say, B was quite the star on his big day! We're having her make a little girl's outfit too--who knows what the future may hold! If you are in the Phoenix metro area and need any type of sewing or alterations done, I highly recommend Gemma's Fashion! This is my own personal endorsement, Gemma probably doesn't even have a clue I'm writing this, I'm just beyond thrilled with my end result and wanted you all to have the same great experience!
|And for for future baby girl :)|
