Baptizing or Christening your little one is one of the major milestones any family can go through. It’s a moment to cherish forever. In some families, a gown can be passed down from generation to generation. Or choosing a one of kind gown to preserve is also becoming increasingly more popular. We were out to find something that could bring that together.
We came across Caremour. From the photos we were quickly drawn to their delicate and beautiful designs and had to learn more about this mother and daughter team that makes heirloom-quality, handmade special occasion dresses.
‘When I had a daughter, I loved dressing her up in the most prettiest of dresses but cringed at the thought of having to spend a lot of money. I soon realized there were many mothers like me who wanted high quality, beautiful dresses for their daughters and yet wanted it without breaking the bank.’
So, they started sourcing the finest fabrics, trims and accessories from all over the world to make unique special occasion wear for little girls. Each dress is designed and handmade but considerably cheaper than it would cost elsewhere.
We received two gowns and let’s start off by saying how quickly they arrived. What a pleasant surprise, especially if you find yourself in a bind a week before your big day without a dress, rest assured you can depend on Caremour to save the day.
When we opened the packages we were blown away at the delicate details but high quality. Stunning and Breathtaking. We all wish it came in our sizes and it would have been our wedding dresses.
What we also loved about it was the wear ability of it. We had a 18 month year old who obviously wants to walk now but didn’t do any damaged as she moved around during the photo shoot. She didn’t seem to be uncomfortable or get any type of heat rash or scraps from any beadwork. It was lightweight and breathable and was comfortable for hours in it.
They have a large variety of design options but if you don’t see anything they will work with you to create a one of kind unique dress. They told me a story about a customer who wanted to combine bits and pieces from about 5 different dresses they had at the shop – and the dress came out beautiful. Needless to say, she was on top of the world when she received her own customized dress stitched to her daughters precise measurements at NO extra cost to her. She received the exact dress she had envisioned for her daughter.
They also had a customer with whom hey exchanged nearly 40 email conversations then stitched the dress to her daughter’s custom measurements. She turned out to be someone who worked at Louis Vuitton and was so pleased with the dress that she left a raving shop review for them. She said “I searched for months for the perfect gown for my daughter’s Christening day and decided that this was my favorite. After working in high-end retail for years, including Senior management with Louis Vuitton, and Michael Kors, I know a quality garment when I see one. I was absolutely speechless when I opened this carefully packaged heirloom gown, handmade for my daughter. This shop was friendly and prompt in responding. They worked with me to meet the sizing needs of my daughter and alerted me as to where they were in the creation process. When we entered the church, women flocked over to us to marvel at this amazing gown. Even as we were exiting, the compliments were still flowing. This gown is truly the most exquisite Christening outfit I’ve ever seen . . . a work of art.” Caremour use these types of responses as an inspiration to make better dresses each passing day.
We couldn’t agree more! Overall, these gowns are a must have. You can see their passion in the design and stitching. Even though they are ‘new’ dresses they have that heirloom quality that everyone will think has been passed down for years. High quality at very affordable prices….After wearing it, you’ll want to keep it forever too!
