This Christening Gown is an heirloom of your heart to be shared with all the little blessings in your life.

The gown is fitted for sizes newborn to 12 mos. Many gowns end at 3 mos. However, many babies are baptized/ christened later, and some babies, though still young, are larger in size. In addition, this gown can be made into a dress as well.

Gown Detail:
This dress has a round yoke with a delicate picot edging, adorned with glass seed beads (optional). The gown is open all the way down back, for quick and efficient undressing.
This gown can also be made as a dress- and is so charming, simply ending below the filet triangles at bottom! Because the gown works from the top down, length can be adjusted as needed.

The sleeves are a flutter of flowing, ethereal-like pineapple scallops. The body of the dress is comprised of a lacy vertical stitching, giving a prelude to the striking bottom edging. The first part of the edging begins with a ribbon eyelet row, followed by a block of triangular filet ending with another eyelet ribbon row. The final part of the edging consists of larger pineapple scallops, akin to the sleeves, bringing together a symphony of love and lace.*

Sizes: Chest Circumference (allow 0 – 1” of ease): 15.75” (NB) 17” (3 mos), 18” (6 mos), 18.75” (9 mos), 19.25” (12 mos)
