Baptism Gown For My Grandchildren

Hello blog friends and happy thursday!
Hope you are all well and enjoying spring/early summer :)
I had a great Easter with my family, and a wonderful warm weather, almost like summer.
Today I just thought I'd show you something quite different in my blog . . .
. . . believe it or not - I actually can sew . . . lol ;-)
This is the Baptism Gown I made almost six years ago when my first 
grandson Leo Alexander was born. 
It's a little bit special because it's made from my wedding dress! 
Thought this would be a nice gesture to my grandchildren :)
I only used the fabric, all lace and ribbons are new.
I tried designing it to fit both boys and girls ;-)
In june my new little grandson Ludvig Alexander will be wearing
this on his baptism day.
I also made a matching bonnet.
That's all for today! ;-)
For the time being I very much lack inspiration for making cards,
but hopefully this will soon change! ;)
Have a lovely weekend all!
See you.

♥ Hugs, Inger
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SWEET COMMENTS :)

Hvor er den bare flot! Du er bare så dygtig! Findes der noget som du ikke kan lave? :)Min mor syede også en dåbskjole til min søn for 25 år siden, ikke helt så fin som denne, men alligevel var jeg meget glad for den! :)
Håber din inspiration til kort snart vender tilbage!
Klem fra Charlotte
