The Dress Is Done

Even though it is quite controversial, I chose to make my wedding dress into a blessing dress for Addison and I LOVE IT! I feel that passing down a blessing gown as an heirloom is more likely than Addison wanting to actually wear my wedding dress. There are plenty of pictures of my dress and me in it. As for Addison wanting to see it when she gets older, well, several women rent their dresses and don't have them for their daughters to try on etc, so she can join that crowd.

The women that cut up my dress and made Addison's finished her dress today - just in time for her blessing and it's GORGEOUS! Here is a preview of the dress; their will be more pictures of Addison in it after this weekend.


Yep - it's beautifully amazing!

It's beautiful!! And I think it's a great idea! My wedding dress is just taking up space in my closet and the likeliness of either of my girls wanting it is slim to none. lol. Bravo to you for coming up with such a creative use for it!

I'm planning on doing the same thing with my wedding dress for Clara's baptism dress. I would have done it for her blessing, but my MIL hand crocheted her dress. It's beautiful!

Love it! Love the idea, too bad I won't have such a wonderful opportunity. :)

Oh my BEAUTIFUL. I'm sorry but I had to laugh when you said it was "quite controversial." Too funny, my dress is still sitting in a closet at my Mom's. Besides the very slight possibility of my sisters wearing it, I'd really be open to the idea of making into a blessing dress if I ever have a girl. LOVE IT!

You are right! A baby blessing dress will be used far more than a wedding dress... there are too many variables when it comes to a wedding dress.
I love my blessing dress that my grandma made for her girls, that all but one cousin was blessed in that all of my girls have been blessed. Yup. That is something pretty special!
