Exact replica of a Wedding Dress

Posted by admin on May 17, 2013

Louise first approached Like Mother Like Daughter in early March 2013 as she was planning the christening for her baby daughter, Darcey, aged 3 months.

She bought her wedding dress with her and we discussed the possibilities.

At Like Mother Like Daughter, we make sure we explain the process clearly without using technical sewing terminology, asking questions such as; Do you want the gown to be modern or traditional? How formal do you want the gown to be?  Would you like any colour added to your gown? Is there anything you don’t want? What is the most important end result for you?

The outcome largely depends upon the drape and cut of the original gown as well as the prominent features and fabrics.

Louise expressed an interest in making an exact replica of the wedding dress as a christening gown.

We then created a sample dress following the discussions.

We then met again so Louise was able to look at the dress and make any changes as necessary.

It is a very consultative process with a number of fittings required before the dress can be finalised.

The outfit which was completed  in late April 2013 included the Christening dress, a jacket, silk knickers and a headband to match. 

"I would highly recommend Like Mother like Daughter.  At first I was hesitant to cut my wedding dress up however throughout the process they really listened to what I wanted to achieve with the dress and I was over the moon with the outcome.

I cried tears of joy when I first saw my daughter in the outfit and the matching accessories were the perfect finishing touch. I am so happy my wedding gown has been turned into something so beautiful for my daughter to wear. It really is a truly special one of a kind!

All the Guests at the Christening commented on how beautiful the dress was and how amazing my daughter looked and could not believe the similarity to my wedding dress!" - Louise Lewis
