      My daughter's christening gown. I had this gown, bonnet and over coat sewn from my wedding dress. It was a wonderful way to honor our wedding day and turn my wedding dress into a family heirloom. I hope this inspires more people to make an heirloom and start such a beautiful family tradition!
