Thrilled to get such a wonderful review from a customer recently!
"I own a vintage christening gown which has been in my family since 1913 when it was sent from Dublin to my grandmother for her children. It has been passed on from family to family down through the generations. At present I am the custodian of this precious gown.
However, in recent years we encountered a problem with the gown. In the early 1900's babies were christened within a few days of birth, and towards the end of the century christenings took place within one month of the baby's birth. However, in the 21st century, it became the norm for babies to be christened 3 -6 months after birth. And so we found that it was a bit of a squeeze to get some of our babies into the gown in recent times!
Having seen Miriam interviewed on Nationwide I contacted her to see if our vintage gown could be adapted to fit modern babies. In order to adapt the gown, the bodice and sleeves had to be extended.
This was accomplished in the capable hands of Miriam, whose delicate work was hardly discernible from the original creation all those years ago. She was conscious of the delicacy of the garment and did all that was possible to retain its original style.
I was thrilled with the result and can highly recommend her to anyone who has encountered a similar problem with big babies and tiny vintage gowns!

Did you know your family heirloom Christening from new if you don't have a Wedding dress to redesign. This gown pictured was sent to the customer to see design progress and was made using all new fabric and lace. The design is traditional and the lace adds a timeless beauty to it. #christeninggenerations   #makingmemories   #christeninggown   #heirloom   #family   #legacy   #handmade   #carlow   #ireland
