Borrow from the past to start your own traditions. This is what the babies from Downton Abby would be wearing.

This beautiful Christening Gown (Baptism Dress or Presentation Dress) was inspired by the ceremonial baby gowns of the past. The use of fine fabric and laces combined with quality workmanship make this a garment that will continue to be beautiful for generations.

The pointed bodice is made of joined bands of French insertion laces and tucks. The neckline is finished with lace edging attached to Swiss embroidered entre d'eaux.

The puffed sleeves are gathered to lace beading. Silk ribbon is laced through the beading, and tied in a bow.

Petite embroidery on the center front panel is framed by V-shaped "fancy bands" of French laces, puffed strips, and tucks. The shape of the band reflects the point of the bodice. The band is extended on each side panel. The band does not extend across the back skirt, but could be added, if desired. The skirt is finished with lace edging.

A wonderful gown to display your antique or collector doll or bear in. Natural fabrics and laces make it appropriate for re-enactors, Victorian, Edwardian or Civil war. Talk to me about hand sewing the dress for true authenticity. Custom sized to fit.

Bonnet and slip included.
Made to Your Order.
Sizes: New Born, Small, Medium and Large.
