This is such a lovely way to remember that special wedding day and use for another great event in your life your newborn child and if you do not want to use yours use your mothers or grandmothers. You can use any pattern new or old and can use specials pieces off the dress for accents or use some new. What a super great idea and so fun to remember those special events as you are assembling this beautiful Christening gown. This is going in my list to remember for future project for someone special. Thanks for idea.

Oh my, shades of the past ... I actually did this over 30 years ago for my first born, and had a satin bodice and skirt with lace trim hem underskirt effect, then I used gold embroidery thread and machine stitched a delicate pattern around the neckline, and a pleat in the back and a little gold embroidery cross in the front! It was pretty but it was also overkill.... I wanted to incorporate so many things that I went overboard! This example is so elegant and lovely, sure to be an heirloom!

This christening gown is lovely. The tutorial informs a sewing pattern from some time ago was used for the pictured dress. Any simple contemporary infant dress pattern should do today. The bits of what appears to be Alencon lace that were used for the tiny cap sleeves and applique apparently came from the brides original dress. So charming and a great idea.
