Baby blessing dress

When I was a little girl my baby cousin died at nine days old and was burried in my baby blessing dress. My grandma told me that when I have my first daughter she would make sure I had a baby blessing dress made so that I could pass it down to my daughter's daughter. My Grandmother had one of her best friends (Kathy pohl) make me this beautiful dress. It was origionally a wedding dress and after so much work and beautiful thought it turned out so wonderful. I really love this baby blessing dress, it means a lot to me. I can't wait for Chloë to wear it.


  1. That is the most beautiful blessing dress that I've ever seen. That will be a wonderful thing to pass on to future generations. Did you Grandma seriously make that blessing dress? If she did, she's got some mad sewing skills!

  2. Love the dress! I can't wait for a little girl! And by the way Leah, he doesn't smile like that all the time although he is more and more now. I had to take about 30 pictures in a row to get that face!
