I love browsing photos of antique garments with embroidery and white work particularly those from the nineteenth century. They have been the source of inspiration for this collection. The special garments worn by babies were an indication of wealth, the more embroidery the more wealthy the parents. It was expensive to have intricately embroidered garments and were not necessarily worn just for Christenings. However even more intriguing is that the fashions worn by the babies mothers reflected the same styles, so consider creating some beautiful embroidery for your own clothes.
