Welcome to Christening Elegance

Fáilte go dtí Elegance Baisteadh

We believe in handmade, quality, individual dresses made for not just any baby but your baby.

The process doesn’t start until you place your order telling us your exact size and colour requirements and if you wish to have your garment personalised with embroidery or perhaps a piece of material that is special to you like perhaps your wedding dress.

Your garment material is then cut from a big roll of the finest supreme dupion silk and your lace/bead-work is selected. Your garment is then cut by hand using a traditional pattern and meticulously put together by our professional seamstress.

Every stitch is carefully checked before making the tiny silk covered buttons. These are made by cutting the exact amount of silk and attaching it to a special plastic popper button.

Once your garment is complete it is checked again this time by a second pair of eyes to make sure it’s perfect before it is carefully wrapped in acid free tissue paper and boxed up to send to you.

An exquisite heirloom, chosen by you, which we have had the honor of making for your special day.

Sizing Guide – * Please use the measurements below as a guide to estimate the best size for your little one. Since babies are proportioned so differently, if you have questions about exact fit, feel free to contact us with sizing questions!
