This month, we are so pleased to share with you lovely items created by this month's sponsor, Embroidered Heirlooms. For the next few weeks, I will be featuring some of their products here on the site and I invite you to visit them to view the quality workmanship and lovely choices offered by proprietor Janet Quinlan.

Today, I wanted to show off Janet's lovely silk baptismal gown and matching bonnet. Here are a few of the specs on this precious ensemble:

Silk Christening Gown, Baptism Gown of and matching bonnet. Bodice features beautifully embroidered ribbon carriers - inserted 2" silk ribbon ties to a lovely bow in the back. Your choice of white, blue, or pink ribbon for both the bodice and the bonnet.

Bodice and sleeves are trimmed with delicate baby hand tatting. Hemline is finished with exquisite 3/4" hand tatting.

Gown is fully lined in very soft 100% cotton batiste, with an attached slip which I will embroider with your baby's name and date for no extra charge.

Sweet bonnet matches the gown with embroidered ribbon carriers and 2" ribbon tie. Back closes with adjustable ribbon closure - allows for growth and longer wearing time.

Gown measures 36" in length, and a luxurious 80" skirt circumference - perfect for portraits.
