When people hear the words 'Baptism Gown' most think of a long, stark white gown made of silk or cotton, with maybe a bit of lace trim or ribbon accenting it. From store to store it seems like they are all the same, nothing particularly special, with little variation. You can get lost for hours trying to search for a distinct baptism dress that speaks to your unique tastes while also being timeless and beautiful. It can be even harder finding one that adds a hint of vintage color while still being church appropriate. You want something as special as your little one wearing it. We crafted the Poppy collection to fulfill this exact request.
We had so many requests for a fully detailed lace gown similar to our Lola Christening collection, and our Poppy lace was the answer, and really needs to be seen in person to appreciate the detail. The overall design is simple so its not fussy and won't overshadow your beautiful baby girl wearing it. The intricate floral lace with adorable scallop edges are used as the details, making the cap sleeves and the absolutely stunning Poppy Lace Bonnet.
We chose our vintage ivory silk to line the gown, which adds a perfect hint of color that helps accentuate the lace detail while also being light enough that it is church appropriate. The richness of the silk dupioni and the subtle sparkle of the pearl buttons on the back add a touch of elegance. The beautiful antique hue along with the timeless design will have everyone thinking this a family heirloom gown that has been preserved and passed down for generations.
The collection offers a long baptism gown or a shorter baptism dress length. We wanted this girls designer lace dress to be used for any special occasion. The sweet floral pattern makes this a perfect flower girl dress or first birthday dress for your baby girl. We also made matching lace detailed booties, lace headband, quilted cotton baby bib, and beautiful lace edge blanket so her outfit is complete and matches perfectly.
The collection is a beautiful but unique option for your family's special day, and it really isn't like other christening clothes you can find for baby girls. What special details are your favorite in a christening outfit? Leave a comment to let us know! <3
