Heavenly Gowns

1 Comment

A little while ago I saw an article online about how a lady had donated her wedding dress to make gowns for stillborn babies and thought it was a great idea.


By the time I got round to getting my dress down from the loft, Cherished Gowns were no longer taking donations – clearly the Mail’s article had done wonders – so I went about finding other charities, when I stumbled across Heavenly Gowns UK, a voluntary, non-profit organisation set up to help bereaved parents and family members at the unimaginable time of the passing of a baby.

I sent them a Facebook message and within an hour they came back with their address. I packaged up my dress and popped it in the post and was thrilled a few days later when I received, not only a private message on Facebook, but also a post of pictures showing they’d received the dress and would be starting work on it soon.


Come back to see how they used my dress to make some wonderful clothes.
