Making a Christening Dress

We have had company for the last two weeks.  It was great to see the kids and have the grandchildren visit, but the quiet feels good too. Gretel asked me to make Molly's Christening gown for her and upon my Mom's suggestion I am making it out of Gretel's wedding gown. After the initial bout of courage to cut up a wedding gown, I have begun. The dress will be a sheer material on top of a silky material. Everything slips and slides! I waited until everyone was gone to start it and now I have the bodice and the front pleats done, so I think I will take a break.
