‘Recycled’ because this is actually made from her mum’s wedding dress! It took a lot of positioning to find clean, undamaged pieces to use but luckily the wedding dress had a massive skirt so lots of fabric! The flowers are taken from the veil of the wedding dress and the arms and neck are bias-bound with duchess satin. I also hand-embroidered the baby’s initials onto the hem of the skirt. The idea is that each baby in the family will use the dress and their initials will be added all the way round.
