Revisit your Irish Heritage with one of my beautiful 100% Irish Linen Christening gowns. Irish linen is synonymous with elegance and comfort and makes the ideal fabric to create traditional christening gowns. I have designed and handmade each gown with meticulous care and expert craftsmanship in my studio in Castlewellan, Co. Down. My designer Christening wear combines heirloom pieces with a traditional appeal. White is the symbol of purity, innocence and spirituality and these beautiful gowns, exquisite suits and matching bonnets, bootees and shawls come together to make an enchanting range that will make every Christening day special. Hand knit cardigans and bootees are also available to compliment the christening outfit as well as romper and sailor suits for baby boys.
I loved my great, great, great grandmother’s christening gown – it’s about 130 years old. It was such a beautiful design that I wanted to create something that would stand the test of time, something that can be passed down through the family for generations. I know your baby’s Christening is a very special event and I put a lot of thought into the designs making them not only beautiful to look at but practical and comfortable for your baby to wear.
Each gown takes many hours to make but I love the way new parents are so delighted with the special gowns. I understand how significant your babies Christening day is and memories will be cherished forever. I have done some individual designs. One woman recently brought in her wedding dress and asked me to turn it into a christening gown for her baby. The gowns are making their way around the world as I have delivered to North America, New Zealand and Australia with families wanting to revisit their Irish heritage.
I’m so glad you’ve stopped to have a look at my designs and I would love help make baby’s first formal occasion a little bit more special and personal. All of my Christening gowns and bibs can be personalized with Baby’s name and date of birth or date of christening. If you have a special dream of a gown in your head please feel free to give me a call or e-mail me.
