A Truly Inspiring Refashion Story: Angel Gowns

I have two new heroes….

John and Diane Wright.

They are my refashion heroes!!!

To see what refashioning looks like in it’s finest form, check out what this couple is doing with yard sale wedding dresses.

I’d love to be involved in something like this.

Be sure to bring a tissue with you!

    I was so touched, I have a couple dresses, I could repurpose, and I think that is a very sweet worthy thing to do.

    I’m from Wisconsin. There is a group here that accepts wedding gowns for this very purpose. The finished baby angel gowns are then donated to Children’s Hospital Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI.

  14. Tory Sonstroem says:

    Oh, wow, that’s a lovely story. I know about about groups that make knitted garments and tiny blankets for the same purpose, but I think this method is better. Thank you so much for posting this!

    Check with any hospital and you will find they would appreciate
    anything like this. I belonged to a group of quilters who made
    Comfort Quilts for sick children and special tiny white quilts for
    those whose babies died or ladies who suffered miscarriages.

    There is also a group of people in Utah that does the same thing. Such a giving idea. Sooo thoughtful. I made one for a little boy that died at birth of my niece’s.
