A Beautiful Christening Gown

Originally uploaded by GuiguiriKa

Isn't this gown exquisite? (This is NOT stitched by me.) The creator has a lovely description in her Flickr post, but since I barely speak English, I have no idea what it says. It looks like it is made from silk. I normally go for pure white, off white gowns but I will say that touch of ice blue across the bottom of the bodice is quite beautiful.

A close up of the bodice. So pretty.
I need to start compiling supplies for a very special christening gown. I think it is going to be an adaptation of OFB's French Acadian Christening Gown. The things we know so far is it will be longer, and pretty sure that the yoke will be adapted to add smocking. I need to work on an embroidery design(s).


  1. According to google translate it's Portuguese and the fabric is wild silk. It is a pretty dress but yours will be beautiful !!

  2. Stunning gown!!! I can't wait to see the one you are dreaming up right now!!!

  3. Beautiful gown, but I'm sure you will make something equally as pretty.

  4. Thank you Martha, you always find the most wonderful gowns! Just last week I was in Sao Paulo, Brazil, I no one could direct me to a fabric store, which was the only thing I wanted to visit as a "tourist". LOL

  5. Hello!
    Thanks for caring.
    Dress for baptized on silk, hand embroidered smock in point.
