  2. THAT wedding gown is THE most STUNNING thing that I have ever seen in my life! I wish that I had worn that gown for my wedding.

      Its interesting that you should remark on the wedding dress. Bridin Twist, who designed and made the actual dress, died after a long illness with Cancer, just last week. Although the dress was made 18 years ago, it was a big part of her life, worth remarking on in the sermon. She was a designer of wedding wear from Ennis county Clare. It was made of linen and she did handmade fine pintucks in a crisscross manner and sewed 200 small roses, handcrocheted by Eileen McAleer at each crisscross. I made the front bodice and added antique vine leaves, given to me by Elizabeth Monahan, who made 40 yards of edging for the dress. There was a lot of work in it.
      Where are you from? Did you get married recently?

    I have a soft spot for Christening Gowns and this one has to be the most beautiful I’ve seen!

      Thank you for your lovely comments, Cynthia. Do you have somebody yet who would fit into the christening robe?
