Frame your family’s christening gowns. Why leave them in a dark, scary box? Beautiful, sweet little christening gowns are often handed down for generations; but when it’s time to hang them up for good, why not hang them on the wall? Call your trusty framer to help!
Christening gowns mark a special moment for families. New life, new future, brought up in a faithful community and witnessed by all – baptisms and christenings are very important. It could be great-grandfather’s gown, or a dear aunt or uncle’s, or even your only child’s gown… but why keep them if you’re not going to look at them?
These four frames were put together to be displayed as a group in a wide hallway. They will be stunning there! And they’ll give the family a sense of tradition and history.
Hand-stitching is the hallmark of a well crafted garment, as well as a well crafted frame. All of these gowns are hand sewn into place so that they are well supported and won’t be damaged by tapes or glues that can discolor and become brittle…
The homespun looking linen in the frames is a beautiful warm grey. Linen is our preferred fabric for preserving items, because it is very durable, beautiful, and inert. These gowns are sure to last lifetimes now! We’re happy to have been a part of this story.
