Christening gown and waistcoat for family S

bespoke christening gown on babe in armsI was privileged to be asked to make two christening ensembles for Family S. We used fabrics left over from Mummy’s wedding dress to create a traditional ‘long gown’ for their baby girl and an 18th century style waistcoat, cravat and trousers for their little boy.
