I'm asking for a bit of help here in making a decision on a Christening gown. Yes I know just like a wedding dress it only gets worn once. But I'm only going to get the one child and I don't know if she'll want to pass the dress on for generations. I know that if I had a gown from my family and it fit my daughter I would have put her in it in a heart beat.
I do have my dad's christening gown. It is badly stained and very fragile looking. It is also a newborn size and Little E will most likely be wearing 6-9 month size when we get her Christened.
Mom knows now for sure that my own Christening gown is a lost cause. Even if she found it I was only 3 weeks old when I was Christened.
So I've been web browsing for gowns. I had thought to make one myself since I'm quite good with needle and thread. But I don't have the time to make one.
J gave me a budget to stick to then he picked out a gown he likes that blew the budget to shreds by almost double the price. So much for the budget.
If you follow me on pinterest you'll see the gowns I like under the Christening gown board I started.
Now I'll share some links with all of you and photos where possible.
One Small Child
I love the ones from Etsy. J loves the one from One Small Child but also likes all the others as well and is leaving it up to me. Yeah and I don't want him disappointed because I don't like his dress as much as the other ones. If it were a bridal gown he wouldn't get a say but it is our daughter's one and only Christening.
