Smocked First Communion Dress

 Beautiful Cassidy Made Her First Communion

My godchild Cassidy's special day was the first weekend in April.  Her sweetness and purity was evidenced in how seriously she took this unique moment in her life and how happy the day made her.  She had an inner radiance that was a delight to behold!

Cassidy wore the dress that I made four years ago for her sister Ashlyn.  The girls have different body types but the dress looked just as lovely on Cassidy.

Cassidy is holding a sterling and mother of pearl rosary over 50 years old:  a gift from me to her.  It was given to me by my father on the day of my own First Communion and saved for a special godchild.   (All photos can be made larger by clicking on the image.)

The picture below is one of big sister Ashlyn with me on her special day.

The dress is made of satin batiste.  I used the Sweetheart Dress by Kari Mecca and a smocking design of my own.  The pearls are Swarovski crystal pearls.  The butterfly is an embellished lace applique.

 The buttons were mother of pearl and attached with more Swarovski pearls.
 More of the pearls on the tie ends.
The family four years ago with Cassidy wearing another smocked by me dress.  She looks so little there!  Time flies!  It seems like it goes quicker and quicker lately!


  1. She looks so happy with her dress. And I love the embellishments on the butterflies!

  2. You do beautiful work! The communion dress is gorgeous.
