Christening Gown mini Amy handbeaded silk gown

I would like to show you what I have been working on this week. This is the smallest garment ever made by me. The baby girl will be 4 weeks old at the time of christening. The bonnet measures 26 cm around the face , yes ....only 26 cm. It is so tiny !!!!
The matching silk booties are 9 cm long. I am not kidding you !!! I have placed a tape measure across the bottom for you to see. I have beaded a matching pearl flower right in front. Once the shoes were turned inside out I had to press them with an iron. Did I hear you asking how ??? Well, picture this.... Index finger inside the shoe iron on top of the shoe, moving right along the edges until the creases disappear.
The mum ordered a matching personalised silk embroidered bib, silk headband with hand beaded crystals and a christening stole/ sash. I love a challenge, it was a privilege to make such a unique sized baptismal gown. I am up for a new challenge, so please don't be shy !

I love this gown and I am trying to find somewhere on your page on how to contact you. I am curious if I can order a dress from you and your costs.
