The HERMINE model, reproduction of an old family baptism dress. It is part of the traditional line of the designer.


It is composed on its breastplate:


  • By many small alternating vertical drapes,
  • By rows of similar lace (20 m) of French origin, of a variety of widths:


- "Flowery" lace of different sizes, Valenciennes lace, width ranging from 2.5 to 7 cm for a footage of 7m10.

- A “cross” between two, of Spanish origin, 1.2 cm wide for a length of 11m20.


- And, two other narrower Valenciennes lace, for the neck circumference and around the armholes, 1 cm wide for a measurement of 1m30.


This sacrament dress, bearing the 100% handmade label, is made in France, in the CECILE DE LA CHAPELLE bespoke workshop in Asnières sur Seine.


This model is a sure value to be passed on to future generations.



  • The dress is in 100% cotton batiste, Egyptian fiber, of a highly selected quality from a large Swiss house for a longer life, with a subtle touch and harmonious rendering.

    This dress can be made identically, subject to the stock of lace footage.

    Each of the christening gowns are 90 or 95 cm long, with a wrap-over closure at the back, a wrap skirt, unless otherwise requested for a traditional buttoning.

    Size to be specified when ordering: 3, 6 or 9 months.

    All our folds are made by hand by the designer herself thanks to meticulous work.

    Possibility of ordering in addition the crush and the under dress.
