This listing is for a Christening Gown Preservation Kit.
This kit includes a padded hanger and a 100% Premium 200 count Cotton Muslin garment bag 39″ long – perfect for transporting to and from the church. Bag closes with two beautiful mother of pearl buttons, and has the option to embroider a beautiful cross or monogram.
After wearing and cleaning, wrap the gown with the enclosed 3 large pieces of acid-free tissue paper, then place in the garment bag and lay flat.
Checking the most reliable sources on storage of garments, the Smithsonian Institute, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London both give similar recommendations:
Store the garment flat, enclosing the garment in acid-free heirloom tissue paper. Place the garment in a 100% cotton bag, carefully folding as little as possible, as folds tend to weaken
