First comes love
Then comes marriage
Then comes the baby in the baby carriage.
I made this baptismal gown for our older daughter out of left over silk from making my wedding gown. It’s a fine-slub dupioni in a candlelight colour, smocked with shades of off-white and taupe. I worked without a pattern because I couldn’t find a pattern small enough for my premie baby (about the size of a newborn at 3 months old). The pics are actually from several weeks after her baptism, so she’s larger in the dress than she was at the time of wearing it.
The lace at the hem of the dress is some vintage lace harvested from an old wedding gown my mother found.
Our younger daughter wore it just a month ago at her baptism as well. This is an heirloom piece.
