I have recently made a christening gown out of the embroidered christening gowns book, Delight (the one on the cover), in the pale pink silk for my newest grand daughter Savannah Rose. She looked absolutely gorgeous on her naming day. The smocking across the double fabrics was tricky but Im so glad I persevered. I really do enjoy embroidery so Im so pleased I have started it again, many thanks for your wonderful magazines and your online store I\'m glad I\'m a subscriber so I dont miss any new outfits or ideas, thanks again

"A christening book is such a special occasion and this beautiful book contains eight classic designs for gowns or romper suits to adorn any little prince or princess. Styles range from simple outfits to elaborate dresses and each one is beautifully embellished with heirloom sewing techniques including inserted lace, pin-tucking, embroidery and smocking. Matching petticoats, bonnets and berets are included to complete the outfit. Each garment uses a combination of machine and hand stitching and trace-off pattern instructions for sewing the garments and embellishing them. This is a delightful book to peruse with stunning photographs, snippets from art and literature, along with christening traditions and folklore from around the world"

During a visit last month to the U.S. I bought your Christening Gowns book and I was impressed with the quality of the photographs and the lovely gowns. I have started to make one and will send you a photo when I am finished. Congratulations on this masterpiece.
