Blessing Dress

Added Jul 31, 2010

Provo, United St...






This is the dress I designed for my daughter’s blessing/christening. I think I spent every night thinking about it as soon as I discovered I was going to have a girl. Maybe I should have named it the “stole my sleep dress!”

I am particularly proud of the hand tatted lace and closures.

    Beautiful, beautiful work! I love how the top of the dress has a victorian feel to it. How blessed your daughter is!

    i’ve just read your post on your blog abut this dress, and i realise quite how much work youv’e put into it! i understand it maybe a bit cheeky of me to ask for a pattern but would you mind if i tried making my own pattern and recreating this dress, based on your design?i thought it would be nicer if i asked since its your daughters christening dress and i understand how personal that is thanks
