A Christening Gown for Gabriela!

I had the distinct pleasure of sewing an antique style christening gown for Ms. Gabriela Morales, daughter of Jose and Carolina Morales (a co-worker) and sister of Daniella Morales. The gown of white cotton eyelet had a bodice that was hand pleated and hand smocked in the trellis stitch. It was embellished with white satin bows on the peter pan pointed collar. Her hat was made out of the same material and with a few snips of the stitches will become her wedding hankie when she marries.

I think you have to agree with me that she looks exactly like a little cupie doll! It was an honor to be able to create this dress for her and the family plans to pass it down for generations.
