  1. Gorgeous

    Posted by Alana on 17th May 2013

    I searched several websites for the perfect christening outfit for my 4th godchild as I also purchased for the previous 3. I was blown away by the beautiful gowns, variety and ease of order with speedy delivery. When the gown arrived it was honestly jaw dropping. I am more the pleased with my purchase and can't wait for the live debut!

  2. Beautiful....

    For months I've searched for a gown for my baby girl's baptism and even though I saw many I kept on coming back to this one. I had my reservations due to the price, but I finally caved in and purchase it along with the puffy slip. The gown finally arrive today and let me tell you that I was blown away. The picture simply just does not do any justice. The quality of the fabric is beautiful and I can't wait for the date to come so that everybody can see my little baby girl.

  3. Stunning!

    Amazing beautiful and well-crafted. We went for the pink rosettes and they added the perfect touch of color. My daughter looked like a doll. This gown is worth every penny, you will not be disapointed.

    I purchased this gown for my youngest Granddaughter's Baptism. I was so impressed with every little detail put into the making and design of this gown. We used both the underslip and the petticoat with it for extra fullness. I can't tell you how many wonderful compliments we recieved about how beautiful it is and what a very traditional and regal look it has! It was definitely the perfect gown for our "Littlest Princess"!

  6. The best!!

  7. Beautiful Gown

    Posted by Jacki E. on 7th Mar 2012

    I looked for about a month for a gown for my daughter and kept coming back to this one. I am so glad I decided to purchase this gown - it was perfect for my daughter's special day. We received several compliments on it and were told how beautiful it was over and over. For us, it was true to size.

  8. Beautifiul- truly an heirloom gown!

    This dress is exactly as described. Make sure to order the recommended slip to get the desired look in the picture. I loved this dress so much I just ordered the coat to match as it will be a beautiful keepsake for my daughter!! Shipping to Canada was about a week...quicker than I thought!! You will not be disappointed with this gown!

    This dress is by far the MOST BEAUTIFUL CHRISTENING GOWN I have ever seen. I am what most call a ridiculously picky mom and this gown far exceeded my expectations. My daughter looked like a "PRINCESS" on her Christening day. Virtually everyone present at the ceremony stopped to compliment my daughter and ask where I had gotten her gown:+)I highly recommend this dress for anyone who wants their daughter to look absolutely stunning and who wishes to have a Christening gown worthy of passing down as a family heirloom. Please note that you must first measure your baby in order to get the correct size, and you definitely have to pair the dress with the recommended slip in order to obtain the desired fullness. ALL IN ALL THIS PURCHASE WAS AMAZING and worth every single penny!!!

  10. Stunning

    Posted by momneedscoffee on 12th Nov 2011

    Just got the gown today. It is absolutely gorgeous. If you're thinking about this dress and worrying about the cost, just go for it. I fell in love with this dress and couldn't get it out of my head. It definitely lives up to my expectations.

    Note on the small sizing reviews - measure your baby. My little one will be 5 months old on the 17th of this month. I had to buy the 12 month size (going by the 18" measurement) and it fits perfectly! She's not a big baby either; she's in 3-6 month clothes. So make sure you measure. And definitely buy the bouffant slip. It makes the world of difference!
