Irish Christening


Baby Items

Special Occasion


Marianne made a beautiful hand-smocked Baptism gown for my grandaughter along with a smocked pillow with her name embroiderd on it. The dress also had a hat,Bib with name, and Marianne emproiderd the name and date on the slip. I now have another grandaughter and I returned the slip to have her name and date embroiderd on it in 2009. She also made a new bib with the new babies name. There was a time factor on the slip and bib, Marianne came through on time. I don't think I'll have any more grandchildren, but when the two have babies of their own we hope to continue the tradition of names and dates on the slip. Thus making this dress and heirloom to be passed through the family.

Available Fabrics

Irish Linen

100% linen - "Belfast's Best" - Imported directly from Ireland, highest quality pure authentic linen has a gorgeous finish in a soft white color. Dry clean only.

Cotton Sateen

This special weave has a very smooth finish on one side; kind of a silky sheen and luster to normally dull cotton. It is finely woven with a silky drape. It is a great hybrid of cotton and silk, incorporating the breathability and moisture-wicking properties of cotton with the sheen of silk. Care Instructions: Machine wash gentle, tumble dry low.

Satin Charmeuse

Charmeuse is a lightweight polyester fabric woven with a satin weave. The front side of the fabric has a shiny satin finish - lustrous and reflective - whereas the back has a dull finish. Polyester charmeuse can often withstand machine washing, but it does not breathe as well as silk. Charmeuse differs from plain satin in that charmeuse is softer and lighter in weight.
