My Gift to Catherine Anna

This is Catherine Anna.

Catherine Anna 2

I was honored to be chosen to make her christening gown. The dress is finished and turned out better than I expected.


I made a video for Catherine to keep about my inspirations and the symbolism I incorporated into design.  You can watch it too.

Catherine has my name inside out (coincidence) and she lives in Chicago. She’s my God niece. In the end, her dress will look like this, unless her family opts not to sew their boutineeres onto it.


Here’s the Russian pattern that I modified, I couldn’t read a word of it, but I looked at the images. I used colors that are more Scandinavian and Hungarian.

I love you Catherine! Wear your new dress in good health!
