Making Stuff: A White Dress {Women’s Skirt Refashion}

by This is Carrie on September 13, 2010

Of course I was thrilled when Princess wanted to wear the baptism dress my mom made for me to get baptized in, but I still wanted to make her something special to wear on her baptism day.

Made from an already interesting, hand-me-down, handkerchief hemmed, women’s skirt, this was the dress she changed into after her baptism.  At first she thought it was little weird with the “dangly ties” and “wings” but once her grandma said she looked like an angel, she was sold.

I used existing ties on the skirt to create straps, extra fabric trimmed from the hem for the sleeve ruffles and scrunched up the top for a perfect fit using elastic thread shirring in a box pattern.

A guy goes into a store, see something around the rack, and say, “Looks good, I’ll take it. Bride’s home is also decorated with colorful lights and songs and dances are performed. Sand ceremonies, bubbles and flower showers (guests toss rose petals as opposed to rice) are nice, but trade winds may blow the butterflies and doves over to sea and earn lighting candles impossible. With countless options to select from, you should find someone you can depend on and have confidence inside their suggestions.
