Abigail - Heirloom Baptism / Blessing Gown
Chantilly lace over taffeta in this memorable ivory dress; pearls accent the bodice and sleeves. Under the taffeta, a 100% cotton lining provides for baby’s comfort, as do the 3 flat snap closures in the back of the dress. No need for an additional slip. All exposed skirt seams are finished with heirloom-quality French finish techniques. The bonnet is also lined with 100% cotton and ties with satin ribbon. Each M2R dress is accented with a heart-shaped charm, button, or pin that can later be worn or attached to a first communion or wedding dress. This dress is designed for a baby that is 3-9 months old, or weighs12-18 pounds. (My first baby weighed 20 lbs. at 3 months, so I have tried to accommodate variations!) The chest measurement is 20.5" and the length from shoulder to bottom lace is 32 inches. This dress can be hand-washed, or machine-washed on a delicate cycle, and in cold water. Hang to dry. The layers of the skirt can be carefully pressed, hot iron on the cotton lining, but warm iron only on the taffeta, lace, and organza. Synthetic fabrics and laces can melt with an iron that is too warm. With proper care this love-sake gown will last generations! This gown is ready to ship.
