Heirloom Edwardian Christening Gown with Pintucks Embroidery and Lace Trim


Heirloom Baby Gown: Heirloom Christening Gown

This sweet white cotton batiste and linen gown was made in England in the early 1900s. It features rows of whitework embroidery on the batiste bodice. The neckline and the long sleeves are finished with soft white lace, with ribbon insertion to tie the sleeves to fit. Typical of the period, the gown closes in the back with ties at the neck and yoke. The long linen skirt is finished with rows of pintucks above the hem.

Note: There is an identical gown with whitework embroidery below the hem. (See below.) These gowns were purchased together at the Portobello Market in London. It is likely that they were originally made as christening or baptism gowns for boy and girl twins.

A lovely heirloom christening gown, baptism gown, or dedication gown for your baby boy!
