Benjamin’s Christening Gown

Here it is! It is made out of silk from Alexis’ wedding dress (Benjamin’s mom). It is lined with light flannel. The skirt buttons on to the rompers for the Baptism and then comes off for after. The buttons are all vintage mother of pearl from my collection. The lace was also vintage that I have saved for quite a while. I hand embroidered the monogram in silk thread.

  1. Benjamin is one lucky boy to have such a talented and giving Godmother. Thank you for giving us a family heirloom to pass down, and some great memories this weekend!
