The creation of an Antique Reproduction Christening Gown
This is to show the progress of creation of an antique reproduction dress & I will be adding photos of the skirt and ruffle as they are added. This dress is made for 3-6 months
20 1/2 "chest
An Antique reproduction dress is hand crochet and the thought of it never being touched by a machine through it’s creation is a miracle in it’s self. This Antique reproduction dress consists of a front yoke, and two back yokes, which are joined together at the shoulders. Yoke edging is then crochet around the outer edge of the mesh and ends of rows with love knots (the love knot is the sign of eternal love). Next Sleeve caps are crochet on and have the same motif as the yokes, skirt, and ruffle.
