Ok everyone, I am so excited to post these pictures. Does anyone remember my oh, SO cute niece Lilliamae that I did newborn pictures for???
Well I had the chance to take some pictures of her in her blessing dress just recently and you will never believe where we found the materials used in her dress! Does this shirt look familiar?
When doing Lilly's newborn pictures (CLICK HERE TO SEE THOSES) her mom and I ran to D.I. to find some textures materials We found a few old shirts including this one that worked perfectly!
As I was cutting off the ruffled sleeves of this shirt off I had the idea to use them as a little skirt in our pictures!
The rest of the ruffles we used in the background of the pictures
After our photo session my Sister-in-law liked the lace so much that she decided to use it in Lilly's blessing dress and it turned out AMAZING!
The blessing was up in Provo and my family was staying at my Aunt's house who is also an avid garage saler. When I was asked to take some pictures of Lilly's dress I scrounged around for some cute props. My eyes settled in on this antique toy baby craddle. My Aunt bought this for $7 at a garage sale! It was perfect for the pictures!
Here are some pictures of just the dress.
Using the lace off of a shirt we found from D.I. was pure genius! Here is my Sister-in-law's explanation of how the dress was made and a picture of the materials:
