There are few days in our lives when what we wear is really important. When our clothing is a statement of something more. One of those days is the day you get baptized and get to wear a beautiful white dress symbolizing purity. My little 8 year old niece really got to wear something special because she is also wearing her dad's shirt made into a dress by her aunt.
I love the little details of this baptism dress made from her dad's dress shirt like the tulip sleeve, the added tulle, and the decorative ribbon above the scalloped waistline.
I've been so behind on posting some of my creations that this little dress got forgotten about. I had intended to make a tutorial video about this one, but I don't have time and want to show off this cute "before and after" before I forget again.
I love the symbolism of this little white dress. This little eight year old was baptized by her dad while both were wearing all white. Then he laid his hands on her head and she was given the gift of the Holy Ghost to be her constant companion while he was wearing a white dress shirt and she was wearing this beautiful dress made from his old shirt.
