For this I chose a christening gown that had been worn by my daughter.
It is a white knitted dress. The bodice is stocking stitch with pearls added, the skirt is a lace pattern. The collar, cuffs and frill at the bottom of the skirt are knitted in a lace pattern with pearls all along the edges. The bottom of the skirt is gathered with a fabric rosebud on each gather and there is pink ribbon threaded around the waist, neck and cuffs tied into a bow.
I hand-knitted this dress for the christening of my daughter twenty-two years ago, we lived in Yorkshire at the time. It is knitted in 4 ply wool and the pearls are knitted in. I originally knitted it as a traditional christening gown, but she was just a year old by the time of the christening, and walking, so I made the gathers in the skirt to shorten it and gathered in the waist so that if fitted her properly. She wore a lace petticoat underneath which made it a little bit shorter as well.
My favourite part is the beads around the edge of the collar and the bottom, I can't actually remember how I did this, but I did thread all the beads on before knitting!
