All these Victorian christening gowns display a lovely, delicate beauty and are wonderful, authentic examples of the fine craftsmanship of the Victorian and Edwardian period. Many are heavily adorned with lace or the most exquisite hand embroidery. No two christening robes were ever produced the same, so you can be reassured that you will be purchasing your own unique antique christening outfit.

Hello Linda,

I just wanted to let you know that I received the christening robe yesterday.  It is even more beautiful in person!  I am so thrilled to have it, and I think it’s going to be just perfect in every way.  I’ll follow up with some pictures for you after the Baptism.

Many thanks, Madeline, February 2012

Some have been carefully restored – all are ready to wear. Choose one of these heirloom christening robes for your baby’s baptism day in the knowledge that it has been stitched with love and intricate care.
