Elizabeth Nash was approached by her neighbor, and asked if she would make a christening gown for her child. Because the child was walking, Elizabeth made a ballerina length christening gown, and the little girl walked up the aisle in this beautiful hand stitched lace gown, and a business was born. Elizabeth hand stitches the lace and adornments on each gown, and she rarely ever repeats a design, so your christening gown will be uniquely yours. To take a break from her sewing, Elizabeth hand knits infant sweaters while watching TV. She is constantly doing something, and with both her and her husband working from their home, they enjoy life to the full. Please allow 3 - 4 weeks for orders to be shipped.

Using batiste or eyelet, Elizabeth sews Victorian length Christening gowns, which measure from the yoke down approximately 36", or shorter/longer if desired. Then Elizabeth hand sews lace, ribbons, pearls and antique lace if it's available on the gown and the cap has matching lace trim from the gown so it makes a set. Both the cap and full slip are included. Each piece is original, and rarely does Elizabeth repeat a design. For a treasured keepsake, Elizabeth is the one to see. Christening Gowns are priced between $175 - $195, and the cap and gown shown are priced at $185.00 plus $6.00 shipping and handling.

Baby sweaters, hand knit by Elizabeth in all pastel colors with a small contrast stripe in the yoke, are available in newborn to 1 year size. These sweaters are knit in acrylic, so they are soft and washer and dryer safe. Elizabeth even crochets the buttons so there's nothing hard to hurt your baby. Hand knit Sweaters by Elizabeth are priced at $15.00 plus $4.00 shipping and handling. Please mention pastel color desired.
