Esther–Our New Silk Baptism Gown featuring Embroidered Lace Trim!

Old-world look, New-world feel

What could be better than a simple, yet elegant baptism gown?  How about one that is made with gorgeous pearl-white silk!  Our 100% silk dupioni provides an heirloom look with a rich luster & feel!  This particular silk is a subtly textured fabric woven from a double strand of silk yarn in a plain weave pattern. The yarn is uneven and varies in width, creating a series of natural horizontal “slubs” that fosters a unique old-world character within the fabric.

To add even more vintage appeal, classic silk puff-sleeves accompany a silk high-waist bodice.  Followed by a lavish one-inch pure silk ribbon that is used for the dress sash.  This brings luxury and allows adjustment freedom for a snug custom fit.

Embroidered Lace

For the focal point of the bodice we used beaded scalloped-peaked embroidered lace.  The pearl-like beadwork in the center of the lace provides subtle detail, along with impeccable presentation.  In addition, this elaborate lace is the highlight of the matching bonnet, along with more one-inch pure silk ribbon for chin ties.  Also, the skirt is adorned with additional embroidered lace as it is festooned around the edging like delicate icing on a cake.  Dainty beads sprinkle the embroidered lace of both the bonnet and the skirt–so quaint!  Finally, the skirt becomes complete with a generous silk-ruffle hem.

Baptism Keepsake Quality

The grandeur of this gown stands alone.  However,  we felt personalized embroidery would add the perfect keepsake touch.  To do this we have included a soft cotton slip to go underneath the gown.  Here a cross, full name and baptism date, or birth date can be a needlepoint work of art to be cherished.  By customizing the slip, the gown is left in an heirloom quality that can be handed down to future posterity.

Angel’s Look: Christening Gown and Accessories

Meet Angel! This adorable little girl is the daughter of one of our wonderful seamstresses. She recently celebrated her Christening and we had to share her big day look with you! Take a look at this gorgeous baby girl in her one-of-a-kind Christening gown and accessories!

Our seamstresses put together a custom Christening gown for little Angel that is similar to our Kate gown. The beaded lace over-dress is stunning atop the luxurious pearl white dupioni silk. We love the cap sleeves and sumptuous silk ribbon tie. Angel’s custom accessories included a pair of silk slippers featuring ostrich feather plumes and a lace and feather headband. She also chose a bonnet, bib and blanket (with pretty pink embroidery) with the same lace and silk to match her gown . Under her dress, angel wore our butter-soft camisole bodysuit and a ruffled cotton slip.
