Seamstress for custom baptism gown?

I've become attached to the idea of using the fabric from my wedding dress to make DS's baptism gown/robes. Did anyone else in the area do this and have a seamstress recommendation?

  • I haven't, but I use Fashion Dream (between Courthouse and Clarendon in Arlington) for alterations. She basically took apart and re-assembled half a bridesmaid dress for me and did a fantastic job.

  • I have a ton of fabric I was hoping to do the same thing with, but I don't know anyone who does baby sized work.  I was thinking of just bringing it back to my wedding dress seamstress in Old Town Alexandria, or asking her if she knows anyone.  Elegance by Roya is the shoppe.
