My largest project to date! Hand crocheted christening dress. The dress is lined with linen and the baby's name and christening date embroidered along the hem. Not sure I will ever attempt this again, so hopefully my daughter in law's sister, passes it on to my grandbabies one day!

thanks everyone :) and for the great suggestion of putting my name and date made on a small label inside. I had not thought of that, but would like to think if its handed down, that someone in the future will know I crocheted and embroidered it !

What a lovley Heirloom keepsake. I hope future generations take good care of it. You should put a little label with your name and date it was made.

What a beautiful treasure you've created. It surely will be passed down through the generations. How wonderfully done. I, too, love making christening gown, so the little ones will be blessed by love.
