Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I went to several chain stores and all the baptism gowns were 100% polyester. I really wanted a 100% cotton gown. If I had more time I was going to sew my own. The baptism date came up quite quick so I ordered this gown with two day shipping. When I received this dress I noticed that only the lining is 100% cotton. The outer portion of the gown is 50/50 cotton/poly blend. I did not have time to return it and start all over and not sure if I would have bothered. I just wish it was mentioned in the description. It was definitely more beautiful than anything that was in the stores. I knew the pro of the poly/cotton blend would be it would be less wrinkly so it was fine. The dress did run small as other reviews mentioned. The large size (12-18 month) fit my 17 lb. 7 month old perfectly.
This gown is precious. Very well made and beautiful. Here's why I like it:
-Machine washable. -Tumble dry-able. (The tag may say line dry... I'm not sure... But when I washed it after the baptism, I popped it in the dryer on low for a little while.) -The material is good quality and thick, AND the lining is attached. (No extra slip to put on Baby while Baby is crying hysterically after getting dunked!) -It's made in the USA!!! -The bonnet!!! (At first I worried about the bonnet being to prairie-like. But when you put it on with the dress... Oh wow, it's so precious.) -It's long. It is long like a traditional, old-fashioned baptism gown. -The classic look. It looks like a beautiful and timeless baptism gown rather than a prom dress. -It's affordable!!!
Be aware- there are different versions of this dress!! I saw this dress in a local boutique and thought I could get it cheaper online. I did... But realized it was slightly different than the one in the boutique. The trim was different as well as the fabric. Fortunately, the quality of this dress online was far better than the more expensive version in the boutique. Score!! But-- not sure which version you get based on the vender. My other daughters dress (I have twins) was not so lucky. Hers was also a different fabric and different trim than the dress in the boutique, but a lesser quality. I checked- same maker, same dress- but different details. Be aware!!! Granted, my girls both looked gorgeous in their dresses!!
