~Victorian English Christening Gown ~

This sweet babies Christening gown dates from the turn of the last century from about c.1890 to around 1910, and is in a classic Victorian style. This gown follows a traditional pattern with a center panel embellished with lace, embroidery and lots of tiny pin tucks. A band of embroidery and a bottom embroidered ruffle go all around the gown.

This gown is made of cotton and has been beautifully sewn by machine with the tiniest possible stitching. The embroidery as well is of fine machine made quality. ..but I do believe that the lace has been hand made. As you can see that this gown is lovely and elegant and would be a fine and beautiful gown for any baby's Christening

This gown measures 21 inches around at the underarms and 9 inches across at the shoulders. It measures 38 inches from the shoulder to the hem. The sleeves are 7 1/4 inches long and the opening of the sleeve measures 5 1/2 inches. It closes at the back with two tiny covered buttons. Because we cannot assign sizes to these vintage items, please check your measurements carefully. We can say that we believe this gown would likely fit a baby of up to about 12 months according to body type.

Finally this gown is in excellent vintage condition, clean and white.. I have found no flaws at all in this gown...no holes, repairs or stains.
This lovely French Christening gown will come to you freshly hand laundered using fine French hypoallergenic soap and will be ironed, fresh, clean, white and ready to use.

Because of the tradition style of this gown, it is the kind of gown that I think could be used for a baby boy or girls Christening.

All in all this gown is just a delightful creation and will be treasured as a family heirloom.
