Christening gown and waistcoat for family S

Beaded chiffon and silk christening ensembles by Felicity Westmacott

I was privileged to be asked to make two christening ensembles for Family S. We used fabrics left over from Mummy’s wedding dress to create a traditional ‘long gown’ for their baby girl and an 18th century style waistcoat, cravat and trousers for their little boy.
