°    "Kathleen, I can't thank you enough for Gia's Christening Gown... It's the most gorgeous gown I have ever seen. We are so grateful - Mario,   Courtney, Gia & Julio Lopez .  

°   Wonderful tips. I love your post. I had boys and missed out on the beautiful gown for the girls. That is so beautiful - Doreen R from The MOMbuzz.com  on "Tips for a Memorable Christening..... "
°   The name says it all. These are crème de la crème, made-to-order, handcrafted pieces that will be saved as heirlooms. Each design is painstakingly stitched from linen or silk and lined with a cotton slip that can be monogrammed. They're heavy on detail, yet the overall look is one of simplicity and grace.  Outstanding piece: The Heirloom Coat dress has a picture-framing collar over a delicate slip. It's available in silk or linen and has tiny tucks and touches of lace. The slip can be monogrammed in pale pink, blue or ivory. So lovely. - Tina Barry, Style Editor, jamesgirone.com
°    I always wished we had a special christening gown in our family for baptisms. When my four boys were baptized, I just bought them a cute outfit at the store. Unfortunately, I don’t remember anything about what they looked like because there was just nothing special about the clothes! I can imagine how different my memories would be if I’d had a family heirloom gown for my little ones. If I were able to do it again, I would purchase a very special gown and start a new family tradition.
