Aurora's Sealing Dress

Awhile ago, I said I would give more details about Aurora's sealing it is.
It was made from my wedding dress with the help of my Aunt Jan and her fabulous embroidery machine.
Here is a picture of my dress before...
(This is the only wedding pic I have scanned in at the moment)

Here is the bodice of Aurora's dress complete with pin tucks, embroidered flowers and puffed sleeves (Anne Shirley would just love those sleeves). I did most of the bodice with help.

Aunt Jan did most of the skirt.

Here is the finished product. I was soooo very pleased with it. I had been a little concern (okay quite concerned!) about cutting up my wedding dress.

I also made the bonnet.

You can see fabulous pictures of Aurora in her dress here. We are so blessed to have many talented friends who are photographers (Thanks Sheila, Mallory & Marissa!). If you didn't see Aurora's newborn pictures, then go here and here.
There is enough material to make a vest, pants and a bow tie for a little boy later. :)
