Baptism dress

Kevin's mom made Karaia's blessing dress. I thought it would be a nice touch to have my mom make her Baptism dress. And then I will BUY her wedding dress. I'm not even going to pretend that I would make it.

My mom has an amazing talent of being able to crochet anything.

She designed the dress herself and made the pattern up as she went. I told you, amazing. It turned out perfectly! A perfect sweater dress for a winter baptism.

So perfectly, in fact, that when I took Karaia to get her pictures taken in it, it took us 15 mins to get from the front door to the photographer because everyone stopped us to admire the handiwork. My mom even got an order for ANOTHER custom made baptism dress!!!!

The details are everything. So much love. So much time.

The Back
The skirt

The Front

I love everything about it. So does Karaia. This dress is an heirloom that will be treasured for many, many. years.

Thank you Mom!!
