Hi guys! I love these romantic antique baby Christening gowns. I found 3 recently that I just listed in my vintage Etsy shop. This one is sheer eyelet lace..so delicate!
They were so long I had a hard time taking a pic of the whole of them. I had to resort to my bedroom wall that has less than ideal light.
This one has bands of mini pleats and an ornate eyelet hem.
This is a heavier "winter weight " one. It has a front panel of mini pleated bands and eyelet lace bands. This one has a few spots..I wish it was summer so I could do a sun bleach treatment.
These are from the first quarter of the 1900s. They are homemade and mostly machine sewn..so much love went into these!
I made one for my kids that they all wore..boys and girls and even grandson Hunter! It has rows of entredeux insertion laces and mini pleats. It took me a long time to make but every wearer was so special to me!
These may need a button added or spot removed to wear but they are all ready to display..fab for a pale or white decor. I also have another 8-9 1940's 50's shorter baby dresses on my ironing board now waiting for me to press! I am thinking if there are any I can't get a pale spot out of I may be dipping them in dye..pale pink, blue or tea-stained and making a garland out of a couple attached to vintage ribbon with some vintage baby cards or handmade ones..hmmmm..Always more ideas than time! Hoping you are having a lovely day! Until next time! Julia
