I have previously written how Nicky had been accepted by NICU as a sewer of outfits for 'Angel Babies', the little ones who are stillborn or who die soon after birth.
The outfits are made from donated wedding gowns and I was able to take photos of Nicky at work, cutting out a number of outfits that afternoon.
The donated gowns often feature beautiful embellishments, which Nicky uses by careful placement of the simple pattern pieces...
Beautiful dresses that were possibly bridesmaid outfits, are also donated and made into Angel Gowns.
Nicky also sews little 'pouches' which are for Angel Babies of 20 weeks or less...
All very sad, but I think we all have to agree, that the way such family sadness and tragedy is handled today and acknowledged is so much better than it used to be...is there anyone else who was also told by hospital staff to 'go home and have another baby'??
At last Wednesday's Sisters of Stitch, Nicky said that coloured outfits are becoming more popular, so donations of bridesmaid dresses and ball gown/ formal outfits are urgently required.
