The cleaning and restoration of a vintage christening gown

Restoring a christening or baptismal gown to its original beauty is a skillful process that involves great thought and care at every stage of the cleaning, hand pressing, inspecting and packaging process.

A Florida client recently sent me this 4 piece christening gown that had been used by 3 generations of her family.

The gown had yellowed due to age, exposure to light and poor storage conditions.

The following before and after photos reflect the transformation.
