Re-making your wedding gown into a christening gown.

A few years ago I did an interview with Threads Magazine outlining the process of turning a wedding gown into a baptism gown. If an old wedding gown is in poor condition I will usually update it with new linings, silk trim,ribbons or pearl beads they always turn out very sweet. This is a great custom option for those on a budget.

Now, if you have a rather large budget there are many options available to you. Sending your entire gown to be re-made is more common than you might think. A gown like this will cost between $200-$400 depending on how much detail you want on the dress.

The Petite Parfait Blog has many examples of wedding gown conversions and you can order a conversion directly from the Petite Parfait website.
