Chloe’s First Holy Communion Dress from Mother’s Wedding Dress

Wedding Dress Gown Recycled Custom Made Communion Dress White Embroidered

This was one special dress to make!

Not only was this dress made from her mother’s wedding dress/skirt, I was also a bridesmaid in the wedding!

When Chloe arrived for her first fitting/planning session in December, her mom arrived with plans to create a less poofy A-line pleated skirt dress. (A design you often see for First Holy Communion dresses.)

But these plans were quickly nixed, when Chloe and her siblings spun and danced around in the sample poofy tulle skirts and dresses in my studio. 

Chloe convinced us to make the dress bigger and the skirt circle cut (for spinning purposes)!

Keeping the full hem of the skirt was also not a bad idea since I did not have to cut the beautiful embroidery along the hem of her mother’s dress.
