Eveningwear: Hey Baby

1 Posted by - October 8, 2013 - Bespoke



Every new mother wants to feel amazing on the christening of their baby and I was only delighted to help my sister out for the christening of my nephew.

Although christenings happen soon after the birth and your body is still changing, who wants to wear a shapeless dress? I’m not saying wear something tight but a little structure goes a long way. The curvier you are the more important it is to accentuate the smallest areas. If you have long legs, show them off. If you love your decolletage, play with different necklines. Make the most of that post pregnancy bust and wear a v neckline.


With my sister, she has a narrow torso so I focused the details on the neck and bust. Constructed mostly of coral Sea Island cotton, the bodice is made with a matching lace and backed with a nude fabric to show the detail. It has a 60s shift dress shape so I trimmed the edges with bias binding in true 60s fashion.


And what makes it a truly bespoke dress is the matching covered buttons.
