The Tristan Christening Gown
CUSTOM ITEM ONLY!
PLEASE SEE THE CUSTOM ORDER FORM LOCATED IN THE MENU BAR!
This beautiful christening gown features ecru Swiss embroideries and pressed tucks. The empire yoke of this dress has 1/8 inch pressed tucks and a 1/4 inch ecru insertion which edges the bottom of the yoke. The neck line is edged in ecru entredeux and has a narrow Swiss embroidered edge which has been hand rolled and whipped and applied by hand. The sleeves are edged in a cuff of Swiss embroideries. This gown is constructed from Swiss batiste.
The skirt of this lovely gown has four bands of Swiss embroidered insertion on either side of three bands of pressed tucks. A wide Swiss embroidered edge is applied flat to the bottom of the skirt. The gown pictured has a finished length of 36 inches, but may also be made 42 inches long.
The gown pictured was left without buttons so beauty/baby pins could be used. Mother of pearl buttons will be used on the back closure.
As with all my heirloom dresses and christening gowns, every attention is given to the construction and finishing details. The sleeves, skirt, and liner (built-in slip) are hand rolled and whipped and then gathered and put together by hand. The seams are French seamed rather than overcast. Wherever possible I try to follow traditional French hand sewn techniques in order to create an heirloom quality item which will last for generations.
Please don't hesitate to ask any questions. This item will be custom made to your child's measurements and to your specifications.
