Today, I wanted to show off Janet’s lovely silk baptismal gown and matching bonnet. Here are a few of the specs on this precious ensemble:

Silk Christening Gown, Baptism Gown of and matching bonnet. Bodice features beautifully embroidered ribbon carriers – inserted 2″ silk ribbon ties to a lovely bow in the back. Your choice of white, blue, or pink ribbon for both the bodice and the bonnet.

Bodice and sleeves are trimmed with delicate baby hand tatting. Hemline is finished with exquisite 3/4″ hand tatting.
