Pictures of the restored jacket and the new matching gown

Here it is ! The matching off white silk handsmoked christening gown and the refreshed family keepsake . I would love to read your comments ! I think it looks absolutely impressive !I hope the family is as impressed with my work. I think the restoration of the silk christening jacket makes a lot of difference. Gone are the fluff balls from the inside seams. There is some discolouration slightly visible in the fabric, but if the gown is looked after further damage will be avoided. If you have any questions about suggested storage please read this posting again.

Gosh Dana, you have done a superb job on the restoration of the jacket & your choice of matching smocked gown really compliments the jacket beautifully - the family should be wrapped in this outfit for further generations to wear - a job well done .... regards Judy
