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.
