Travel Theme: Handmade Christening Gown

Christening gown 1-023

Good morning from a very chilly Hastings day.  I was going to get up and go down to the park to get some photos of the sunrise.  Guess what, my bed was just too warm and cosy.  So I missed it.  I might think about doing it tomorrow.  We’ll see.

This week Ailsa from Where’s my backpack? has asked us for our photos of handmade items.  I have a feeling that I have showed this before.  But I had to take some new photos to show this off more clearly on TradeMe, which is New Zealand’s EBay.  I have noticed just  how much clearer these photos are, compared to those taken with my lost camera.  So maybe that was a blessing in disguise.

Anyway these photos show a christening gown that I made from Indian silk and lace.  Christening gown 2-006

It is very long as you can see, with 6″ lace and satin ribbons at the bottom.  I use this very realistic looking doll to dress up in order to get more interesting photos.

Actually this is rather appropriate as Buckingham Palace has announced the date for the christening of Princess Charlotte next month.

I will catch up with you all later today.

Thanks for visiting.
