"Ever since the new series of Downton Abbey, and the introduction of BBC's The Paradise, we have had an upsurge in the number of enquiries for authentic christening gowns as seen of these two programmes" states Linda Patrick, owner of Little Doves Christening Wear. In response Little Doves have visited auction rooms and collected twenty new christening gowns which are now featured on the website.
There is something so unique with an antique christening gown that has such alluring appeal. No two gowns were ever made the same, and of course there is always the wonder of who wore the gown. People today are now seeking to start traditions off once more and an heirloom christening is a wonderful item to buy for the family. with the intention to pass it through generations as the family gown.
Little Doves also offers a full renovation and restoration service for people who maybe already have an antique gown, that is in need of loving care and attention.
Details of all the antique christening gowns can be viewed on the website http://www.littledoves.co.uk
