This unique communion dress was made from the mother's ball gown wedding dress. It features a beaded bodice, cap sleeves, and a beautiful silk organza skirt with a silk lining and sash with a big bow – all combining to create a stunning and sustainable fashion statement perfect for the sacrament and special occasion.
First Holy Communion dresses are some of my favorite pieces to make. Each girl has a unique personality and taste, which are reflected in the dresses they design. And this is a big day, so they take the dress selection very seriously! My niece and I started designing her dress last fall. Unfortunately, I wasn't happy with the first design and set it aside while I focused on other things. When I came back to the project (with only a week to go before the Mass), she had a completely different vision!
