Aneira - handmade christening gown cont.

Final stages of the white silk dupion christening gown. Can you see how silk is gathered right around the chest ? This gown is 190 cm wide. When you think about it , babies chest measures between 50 cm and 56 cm at the age of 12 months.

I have decided to use clear plastic buttons with a white flower melted into it. It complements the white flower embroidery on the crystal organza. Don't you agree ?

This is a hemline of the white silk christening gown.

I have added two narrow satin ribbons to the short gathered silk sleeve. It adds the lovely , soft touch to the ensemble.
