Description

This is one of a collection of vintage christening gowns I'm offering, one by one. This is one of the most modern and to be honest, it's the one that tugs at my heart strings the most.

This crisp cotton fabric is cool and durable, and the eyelet trim at the hem is the same. Button closure at BOTH shoulders ensures the easiest and most comfortable "getting dressed" time for all concerned. This is the christening gown for the parents who know that a HAPPY baby and a joyful christening have very little at all to do with complicated clothing. This homemade dress came from the hands of someone who wanted just such a joyful day for her baby... And now for yours!

Sizing is not marked on this vintage piece, but it appears to be made for an infant, up to 8 months. Please do check the measurements provided, because my age estimate is an approximate one, and every tiny new person is different.

With the garment laid flat on the table, these are the rough measurements: Arm pit to arm pit is 14 inches (for a total of 28 around the chest); Length from the shoulder to the scalloped bottom hem is 16 inches. The arm openings and neck are comfortably oversized due to the nature of the design.

This piece is in beautiful shape with no notable blemishes to fabric, stitching or closures. It was part of a private collection an has been stored with care for decades. It was recently been soaked in a mild solution of washing soda and fels naptha soap to remove whatever starches and dust that found it's way to the fabric even through it's wrappings. It appears completely restored to it's original glory, though a more thorough cleaning may be in order, at your discretion.

Please take your time with the photos I have provided and consider them part of the description. If you have questions, I'm only a message away.
