Meet Jen Bowers, the Divisional Merchandise Manager for A Pea in the Pod! A stylish mama herself, she is in charge of the team of buyers that keeps our stores filled with trendy maternity pieces for mothers-to-be!
Instead of shopping for a special occasion dress for her daughter Kendall, Jen had the sweet idea of designing something special using fabric from her wedding dress. “My wedding dress was an all-over lace Monique Lhuillier gown. I wanted to incorporate the lace from my dress so she had a piece of me on her special day.”With creative and design expertise from Brittany West, A Pea in the Pod’s assistant designer, they created a beautiful dress for a beautiful girl!We love the idea of repurposing your wedding dress for baby. You could also make a beautiful bassinet skirt, a necklace with the fabric embedded in it, or turn your wedding dress into something smaller, like a pillow. What great hand-me-down pieces for your baby!
