3-Piece Antique Replica Heirloom Christening Gown Ensemble
This gorgeous Heirloom Christening Gown is an exact replica of an antique! It features white voile with tiny tucks in the front and back and lace-trimmed long sleeves and hem. Front has added "bolero" style layer at shoulders edged in lace. This ensemble comes complete with matching slip and bonnet.
The Victorian women would often hand sew elaborate christening gowns while pregnant with their first child. These gowns, always white and with varying modes of delicate elaboration, would be carefully packed away and used again for each subsequent child. Lace, embroidery, tucks and insertions were common.
When purchasing an heirloom christening gown, be aware that cotton and silk (natural fibers) will preserve their beauty far longer than man-made materials.
Christening Gowns will be approximately 27" in length UNLESS you specify 36" length (extra long & flowing)~~ for an additional $25.00.
Christening Gowns will have a "History of Gown" description along with several sheets for passing down information as to when & by whom these Heirloom Gowns are worn for future generations.
Baby's Name, Date of Birth, and Date of Christening can be embroidered into the slip for an additional $15.
Available in Newborn (8-13 lbs.) Small (13-15 lbs.) Medium (16-18 lbs.) and Large (19-21 lbs.)
