My Christening, Dedication, and Bris Gowns       
(click on the picture to enlarge)
Christening gowns are a joy for me to design and make.  I have included some gowns for you to see and gather ideas from. I much prefer designing a gown just for your family.
Whether your infant is being Christened, blessed at a Dedication, or entering into a covenant at his Bris, these gowns should become a family heirloom. I will embroider your infant's name and birthdate on the slip. Any other infants that come along can have their names added to the slip!
Gowns can be very elaborate and include a lot of lace, smocking, tucks, ruffles, puffing, and embroidery or they can be quite simplistic with clean pure lines.The fabric can range from Imperial Batiste (65% cotton 35% poly) to gorgeous 100% cotton Swiss Batiste, voile, or silk Batiste. Other people chose Silk duipioni or China silk, but the choice should be yours.
The cost of the gown will depend on the type and amount of fabric, lace, and the amount of hand embroidery used.
I will post pictures of created gowns from time to time to give you ideas. Occasionally, I post one "Already Made" for sale.
Remember to allow 4 - 6 weeks for your gown to be created and shipped to you. Contact me by phone  770-285-4106/770-355-9522 or by email

Christening Gown for Jack Ross


Jack’s mother knew just what she wanted for her son. His gown is simple pima swiss batiste. The collar features his last initial done in ecru shadow work embroidery. The collar has faggotting insertion with ercu satin ribbon and is trimmed with ecru tatting. The skirt has fancy band of pintucks faggotting with ribbon and entredeux beading. It also has a large tuck at the hem. The long sleeves are trimmed with entredeux, faggottting with ribbon and tatting.

This gown can also be “passed down” if Jack Ross has a little sister some day.

Christening Gown for Janelle     



This gown was a first for me. Janelle’s mother sent me her christening gown to re- design for her daughter. The gown features an organdy overlay over batiste. I smocked it in the bishop style. What a nice way to create an instant heirloom.

Nathan Thomas


Nate’s gown is a “convertible” gown. The romper has a button-on-skirt that is worn for the ceremony. The romper can also be worn at other occasion. The ensemble is made of 100% cotton Swiss pima batiste. The romper and skirt have pleats rather than gathers. The big collar is embellished with blue shadow stitching. It is very tailored for a sweet baby boy.
