Adley Custom Made Christening Or After The Christening Gown


This dress is simpler than most of my gowns. I had started making it as an "After the Christening Gown" but it turned out so beautiful that I think it would work as even the Christening Gown itself. An "After" outfit is designed to be put on after the big event so your little angel doesn't have an accident and spit up (or worse) on the dress, and she can stay beautiful all day long. What is nice about this dress is that it is totally washable! The embellishment comes clips right off so it can be laundered. So you decide, is the the big dress or the after dress!

This beautiful gown can be used as a Christening/Baptism/Blessing Gown or it can be an "AFTER THE CHRISTENING GOWN". It is made out of a soft crushed velour bodice that is fully interfaced and lined with a silky tricot fabric, so it is delicately soft on your baby. The skirt is 25" long and is made of the softest knit ruffles that flow beautifully. It is lined with a tricot underskirt. The embellishment is a super soft fluff ball with a handmade rose in the center and three ribbons drape down the dress to finish it off.

If you are using the dress as the dress for the big event instead of after, it could be made a bit fancier. The bodice could be changed into a taffeta or satin, or even the taffeta rose fabric I have on the Hannah dress. I could also add tulle under the ruffled skirt to add more fullness. All of this would raise the price, depending on the fabric used.

Christening dresses are often handed down through generations, so your special dress can become a family heirloom. Each is one of a kind and will not be mass-produced. Who can really put a price on a family heirloom!!! Together we can create a one of a kind Keepsake Christening combo for your precious little girl!
