    I have been to town today with our christening gown that is 40 years old used for my sister and my christening. It needs a few alterations new elastic in puffed sleeves and the collar needs sorting plus new buttons. I have picked some lace for the sleeves to replace the lace that wasn't very nice. costing £15 for lace and alterations. My mother was showing me pictures of me in it so nice that the munchkin will have a vintage gown to wear. If a girl I can embellish a bit more.:)

    It's lovely to use a family heirloom! My LO wore the same christening gown as me and my sister did - my mum made it from her wedding dress. It was really wonderful for her to wear it and she looked absolutely gorgeous.

    My mum had the bottom of her wedding dress made into a christening gown for us.. But my dad was against any of us ever getting christened.
    She has still kept it tho and its beautiful.
