Jennifer Scace works to cut the pattern out of the bottom portion of a wedding dress while working on a new "angel gown" for stillborns or babies who die in the hospital. The handmade infant-sized burial gowns are part of the NICU Helping Hands' Angel Gown program and created using donated wedding dresses. (Times photo: Anthony Wahl)
Jennifer Scace repurposes wedding gowns, but not for brides. The wearers of her donated "angel gowns" are babies who don't live past their first hospital visit.
