The Edwina Christening Gown

The Edwina Christening Gown


This christening gown is another wonderful example of the way hand embroidery can enhance a christening garment and make it truly personal to the family concerned.

The  Edwina Christening Gown is made from 100% pure silk dupion and the main attention is focused on the front panel that is decorated with a Celtic cross and flower detail.  The embroidery climbs  from the base of the skirt towards the front bodice.  The skirt is pleated and joins the bodice at the waist.  A small front panel is centre to the bodice. Robings decorate both bodice and skirt panel and these are adorned with vintage trim. The robings also contain an inverted pleat to ensure the embroidery stands out on the gown.

Long sleeves with cuff detail and a shirt collar give this gown a truly classic look, but the christening gown can easly be made with puff sleeves or short sleeves and a no collar to give a look more delicate and probably more fitting for a baby girl.

The Edwina Christening Gown is a welcome addition to the range of hand embroidered gowns available from Little Doves.  Other embroidery styles and themes can also be encorporated.

Please phone or email if you wish to discuss alternative embroidery.  We are happy to create any type of embroidery design.
