    Christening Gown

    I made this for my first g-granddaughter out of my daughter's wedding gown. I was pretty pleased with the way it turned out. She makes it beautiful! Hope you enjoy seeing it and her.

    What a beautiful gown. A friend made a gown and each of her 7 grands were christened in the same gown. Each one of their names was embroidered on the inside of the hem. I thought that was a great idea.

    Your great granddaughter is beautiful as well as the lovely gown you made for her. Awersome work.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Beautiful. I wasn't able for several reasons to do one for my granddaughter. The main reason is I'm not a seamstress and really haven't sewn much since my daughter was in first grade until I had a chance to take up quilting.

    Lovely. I have made several Christening gowns from the wedding gowns. I hope you also made a slip to go with the gown so you can embroider the baby's name , birth date, etc. Then it can be past down and each name be added after each child.

    what a smile, what a dress, what a cute baby!!!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
