I have been creating keepsake garments for little ones now for almost seven years. So you can only imagine how I felt when I found out I was having a baby girl. Ask anyone I love having a son, but you can only sew things for your little boy for so long before it becomes odd. While I was pregnant with my daughter I used to spend my days dreaming about making an over the top Christening gown. I was so excited that I finally had the opportunity to create such a gown for my own child!
I have always been a big fan of Martha Pullen and all her knowledge of heirloom techniques. This dress combines one of her dress designs along with some of my own special details, which I added to make the dress more a reflection of my own personal taste/style.
I am so happy that I had the opportunity to create such an elaborate gown. I can imagine her as a grown woman holding it and thinking about how I stayed up late at night when she was a just a newborn to create a special garment for her blessing day.
