The Virginia christening gown is pictured here with our exclusive Heirloom Bouffant Christening Slip.

  • 3-piece set includes gown, cotton slip, and bonnet
  • Color: pearl white (a rich, creamy shade between white and ivory)
  • Fabric: silk dupioni (a subtly textured fabric woven from a double strand of silk yarn in a plain weave pattern--the yarn is uneven and varies in width, creating a series of natural horizontal "slubs", which should not be considered flaws, as they make up the unique character of the fabric)
  • Floral-embroidered silk collar, bodice inset, bonnet inset and skirt band
  • Button closure
  • 100% silk ribbon bonnet ties
  • Heirloom-style open back for ease of presentation (buttons part-way down)
  • Optional slip embroidery placement is off-center front, near the hem (click on embroidery options, above, for details)
  • Length: 32-33" (depending on size)
  • Dry clean only
  • Made in USA

    I bought this dress 2+ years ago for my daughters christening. The dress and the pictures were stunning. I just christened my second daughter and the dress looked equally as beautiful.Truly an heirloom!
