I made this gown using baby’s mummy’s wedding dress – which is a wonderful tradition going back hundreds of years that not many people know about now. A really good way to get another use from that dress! Simple bodice with lace over-lay and organza frill sleeves. The diamanté sash from mummy’s dress gave a bit of sparkle. Layered organza skirt, extra long as is traditional and pretty button back detail. Christening gowns from £150 plus fabrics.
I also made a sweet little bonnet in organza with matching lace trim.
My happy customer wrote: Thanks so much for making the dress, Aly is delighted and I was very touched with the little drawstring bag – it’s beautiful! Many thanks, Julie.
