Our Christening gowns are a wonderful and very special way to re use your Wedding Dress.  We encourage you to send us a photo of the kind of dress you would like and we will do our best to product a design which matches your specification.  Very often our customers like to have a Christening gown which reflects the design of their original dress.  

A great deal of care and hand stitching goes in to these items, which are delivered in our beautiful clear lidded presentation boxes.  All you need to do is place your order and let us know the size - we can work to a generic age range (obviously the age the child will be when they wear it, not when you order) or to measurements.  It is also helpful to us to know when you require the gown for.  

Once you have checked out you will receive a confirmation email containing postage instructions.  Please email us with your order number and any photos you have of the kind of gown you would like making.  Please also see the photos for ones we have made previously.  We understand how nerve-wracking it can be to send your Wedding dress away but we have found that reputable couriers' signed delivery services are extremely reliable.  We post your order back via a next working day courier service.  It generally takes about eight weeks from when we receive the clothing from you.  We strongly recommend having your dress dry cleaned before sending it in to us.  We always use the bottom of the original dress for the new gown as this gives the best finished look - please contact us if you are concerned about how dirty it is.

Please do email us if you have any other enquiries or concerns. Patterns are all bespoke.  The material and therefore the care instructions will vary for each item but will basically be the same as any care instructions for your original dress.

I have just recieved my son's Christening gown from you and I'd just like to thank you so much. It's so emotional to see my lovely wedding dress reborn like this and I'm just so chuffed with it. It's simple and elegant and really perfect. 

Thank you so much! 

    Received my sons christening gown and bonnet yesterday which was made out of my wedding dress, it is incredible, I can’t thank the guys at lovekeepcreate enough is everything I dreamed of and more! My son was born at 26 weeks and I asked the team to make it for a 0-3 months sizes baby as he will be 5 nearly 6 months at the time of christening but obv small, the team have made the gown to my exact requirements and the bonnet to match! Will definitely be using you guys again for keep sakes!

      We get a lot of questions about the clothing which can be used.  This should answer all your questions!


      Types of clothing.  We use baby grows as a guide for numbers of items (below) but you can send us pretty much any clothing.  We can work with all kinds of materials - if they are delicate/knitted then sometimes we back them with another fabric for stability.  We struggle to work with very chunky knits and we can’t use plastic rainwear or swimwear.  On the whole we can do most things, however the wider the variety of fabrics the less ‘uniform’ the finished item will look.

      Number of items.  As a guide to what to send in we ask the for equivalent number of babygrows.  This assumes babygrows that are approximately 0-6months.  If they are tiny babygrows, vest, tops, trousers etc then they would count as half a babygrow.  Equally, if the items are much bigger babygrows, or dresses with quite a bit of fabric to them etc, then you may be able to send less.  Generally we would say it is better to send slightly too much than too little. 

      Notes.  Please do tell us in a note with the clothes which are the favourites, especially if you are sending more than we’ve asked for, so that we can make sure they appear prominently on the finished item.  Please do tell us if you want a bit of everything using.  If you don’t, and we don’t need it all, then we will make a decision about what to use and will send back any uncut items.  Similarly, it is really important to let us know if you are sending in certain items which are particular favourites, or if you want bits of detailing etc using in a particular way.  We will always do our best to adhere to these requests, although it may not always be possible.  

      Quality.  Obviously the most worn items of clothing are often the favourites and we love these.  However, please be aware that the more stretched/worn/washed something is, the more delicate the finished item will be as stitches are more likely to pull into little tiny holes on seams.  Also, more won/stretchy fabric tends to look more stretched – obviously!  This doesn’t mean it is over-stuffed, it is just a consequence of the fabric.  We think it still looks lovely, but you just need to be aware that it may look more different to the pictures on the product pages.  There are lots of customer photos on our Facebook page ( so please do look there for more real life examples.  We strongly encourage customers to look at the customer photos  so that you can get a good idea of the variety in appearance of the products. 

      Offcuts.  We do keep remnants of fabric for a short amount of time after dispatching your order, so if you aren’t happy, or want something back, you need to tell us quickly.  Once your order is dispatched then we usually recycle remaining fabric within a few weeks.

      How do I send them in?  Once you have placed your order you will receive a confirmation email with postage instructions.  Please follow the instructions!  It is really important to make sure the order reference and a senders address is on the outside of the parcel.

      We use two main methods of dispatch - Royal Mail and DPD Local. Please use the table below. We’ve used a number of different tiers to keep prices as low as possible without compromising on the quality of service.

      UK Mainland keepsake orders are shipped using DPD Local on a next day delivery service. Highlands & Islands and Northern Island keepsake will be sent using the most cost effective signed for courier. Clothing, gift sets and non-personalised items will be sent via Royal Mail.

      Our Keepsake Express Service can be added at the checkout and relates to how quickly we make the items; it does not include the cost of shipping.

      We do offer international shipping based on the best courier quotes we can get, it is best to get in touch with us to discuss what you want to order and where it would be going so that we can get a more accurate quote.

      It is really important that you tell us if you are going to be on holiday for an extended period so that we don’t dispatch your keepsake during this time. If parcels are uncollected after three weeks the post office/courier return them to us and we will charge the shipping cost again to cover the cost of re-sending it.

      We have a maximum postage limit of £15, so we don’t charge anything above this amount.

      * Small items includes Grandad Cushions’, Daddy Dress/Shirt, small chicks, letters, classic stockings, keepsake stockings.
