Unisex christening gown- making p1

Today I have started to design unisex christening gown. I have opted for heirloom guipure / venise lace with no flowers.It is an eye-catching trim, don't you agree ? I found this lovely delicate leaf branch motif in my embroideries. I think it suits the design perfectly.
I have started of with one layer of lace inserted about 20 cm from the hemline, but it didn't "grab" me once it was put together..... as you can see I have added the extra layer when the silk christening skirt of the new unique design was lined... Now I am happy with the skirt section. Tomorrow morning I will continue on with the yoke.....
Today's quote comes from Abraham Lincoln.....
"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother"
