Keepsake Christening Gowns and Baptism Outfits


With this keepsake, one-of-a-kind christening gown, your wedding dress can shine from your big day through your infant’s special day and for generations to come!


Hand-crafted from materials and embellishments that are sourced from your own wedding dress, our talented seamstress, Linda, works exclusively with you to ensure each christening gown is designed to your specifications and features perfectly bespoke details for celebrating your baby’s big day.


How It Works: Please read carefully and thoroughly.


Step 1


Take a picture of your wedding gown along with any ideas you have for your christening gown and send it to


Not all wedding dresses have enough material to make a christening gown and not all materials are created equal. This gives us a first look to evaluate and an opportunity to get a feel for your style. We then reach out and let you know if we can do it.


Step 2


Linda will contact you to walk you through your choices for style, design, size, and additional accessory options.

Christening Gowns are priced at $275 and include the gown/romper, headband/bonnet.

Additional accessories include:

matching dust cover - $40 and up (embroidery available)

Booties $25

Bib $25

Bloomers $25

Padded hanger $20

Shipping $25 (will be added to your price quote)

Rush/expedited shipping costs will vary.


Step 3


You will receive a price quote via email. Please accept the quote and pay the invoice that follows. Invoice is due and payable upon receipt.


Step 4


Mail your dress to Linda VanDyke at the mailing address she provides to you.



You MUST retain your tracking number until you receive confirmation that Linda received your dress. We will not be responsible for lost packages. Should your package become lost, we encourage you to open a case with the post office.


Step 5


Linda will send you a confirmation email stating she's received your dress. Another conversation between you and Linda may be necessary now that she has your dress in hand. Please allow 2-4 weeks after receipt of your dress for completion of your christening gown.


Step 6


Once Linda is finished with and is ready to mail your christening gown, she will send you an email containing tracking information.


What Happens to the Rest of Your Dress?


If you would like to order additional keepsake items to be crafted from your wedding dress, these can be purchased in a separate order on our website.

These items will be crafted and shipped after the completion of the christening gown.


All dress fabric remaining after the completion of the christening gown and additional keepsake items will be donated and used for angel gowns, layette sets, or NICU graduation sets.

Some dresses offer more than others, we do our best and promise to use every asset your dress brings. We love what we do and promise to take the utmost care when putting together this heirloom creation. We are here to answer any questions at any time.


Proceeds from christening gowns, keepsake items, and remaining wedding dress materials help support the Emma & Evan Foundation and our mission of helping grieving families to find hope!
