This is a gown I made two years ago. It is a bishop style. Bishop-styled gowns are one of my favorite designs for a christening gown when you plan on other babies wearing it someday. A bishop has a lot of give through the shoulder area, lending itself to fit babies of varying sizes.
Our family gown was made by my sister, all by hand , and was also a Bishop style. It has been worn by all our grandchildren, at very different ages and it fit them all. The test for it will be our newest granddaughter Millie , who was born the weekend before Mother's Day last year. Our church has one baby dedication ceremony each year and it is always on Mother's Day!!! So , she will be dedicated this year at one year old!!!
Here is Lacey in the gown at her dedication last year:
