Today, we’re taking you behind the scenes. Here’s how the Royal Christening Gowns are made.
How it all started… After Great Britain’s little prince was Christened in 2013, we started receiving calls asking if we had any boys baptism gowns made from frilly lace. Do we offer anything a little more decorated? Can I get a longer gown? Can you make it with more ruffles? Mothers and Godmothers wanted something grand. Something monumental. Something Royal…
How we made it happen… We knew we had to answer the call to design an aristocratic christening gown. We started listing all the design elements that customers were begging for. Ruffles. Ivory lace. Very, very long. Ornate. Old-fashioned. Just like Prince George’s. So we went to work.
We selected fabrics of the highest quality. A lustrous satin-silk was the perfect base. It combines all the rich character of silk with the luster and smooth texture of satin. It’s absolutely heavenly to the touch. We topped it with a re-embroidered lace netting. What’s so great about that? All the texture! The fine needlepoint lace boasts filled-in motifs, outlined with a heavier silky cord that create a raised outer edge. The floral motifs stand out on a sheer net background. It’s absolutely lovely.
We designed the gown to be a replica of the English Royal Family’s gown. Our Royal Gown captures the essence of old-world fashion in a modern world. It boasts a lace collar. An embroidered bodice, flanked with lace panels. Tiered lace ruffle sleeves. Symmetrical sweeps and ruffled skirt. An exaggerated heirloom length. Button back closure. Hand-gathered silk trim.
