A Special Dress for Payton

From this.....


... to this.
The lace overlay on the dress skirt is from Payton's Mother's wedding gown.


The bodice lace is from Payton's Grandmother's wedding gown.

For those of you who may wonder why we would cut up a wedding dress......
The bottom edge of dress was soiled from the outdoor wedding on a rainy summer evening. I used only the part of the dress from the knee area down to the soiled area for Payton's dress. The wedding dress will be hemmed to above the knee and can be worn as a party dress.
And yes.. it still fits the bride mother!
