into this, for my little girl's 1st Communion!
Where do I start??? With the skirt being gathered, I'm confident that there is plenty of fabric, not to mention that the detachable train supplies me with even more! Initially, I was thinking of using only the satin (and not using the beaded lace bodice of my dress), but now I'm wondering if that wouldn't be a good use of the little short sleeve over-jacket piece of the Vogue pattern?
Let me also say, my sister is very troubled that I cutting my dress up. She's afraid that DD will want to wear it someday, but I'm confident that she'll want her own dress! As nervous as I might sound, I'm really excited to share my wedding dress with DD in this way. My anxiety comes from "I want it to be perfect!", not from "OMG... I'm cutting up my wedding dress!" (Ok, maybe just a little bit of the latter...)

Obviously, I'm in the early stages here, just gathering my thoughts before grabbing the scissors. If you have any experience in this process or advice to offer, please share!!! I've got until Easter (April), so there's plenty of time to do it right!
