The re-birth of a beloved bridesmaid's dress :: A Customer Cameo

Nicole met Mary after college through a mutual friend. The girls became fast friends. Fast forward several years, Mary asked Nicole to be part of her wedding, complete with an adorable, full length, pale pink, silk bridesmaid's dress.

In 2014, Mary was ready to celebrate again.  Her family would be welcoming a baby girl New Years Day! Nicole had something wonderful in mind. A baby shower, of course, and a new life for that gorgeous bridesmaid dress. Nicole and I worked together to turn that silk gown into a huggable personalized baby pillow.

Nicole is a favorite local family lifestyle photographer who is difficult to get out from behind her camera, so thank you to whomever managed to capture her in these photos!

Now you tell me, what fabulous ways have you up-cycled a bridesmaid's dress? 


I confess, I turned one into a Halloween Costume - poodle skirt, of course!
