Christening Gown for Baby A

Pale blue silk mini-me christening dress by Felicity Westmacott

I made Baby A’s mother’s wedding dress and a few years later I was very privileged to be asked to make a christening gown too. I used left over materials from Eleanor’s wedding dress to make the christening dress. We designed a dress using elements of style from the original wedding dress, but made suitable for a baby to make the perfect ‘mini-me’ dress.

Eleanor commissioned a shoot after her daughter’s Christening where she wore her wedding dress too! Two beautiful girls in the ‘same’ dress.
