Amy Sheer Blessing Dress, Christening Dress, Baptism Dress with Matching Baby Headband

Sweet Amy!

Next up from our NEW designs is our Amy Blessing Dress.

Amy Short Christening Dress by One Small Child

 

Blessing Dress Details:

A 100% sheer lattice, polyester dress delicately overlays a soft 100% cotton slip.  Flower-vine details float atop the bodice lattice and skirt edge.  Perfectly scrunched lace wraps each sleeve in pure sweetness.  The white satin-ribbon sash makes getting that perfect fit a breeze.  (Ever wondered how to tie a dress sash into a perfect bow?  Check out our Facebook page for a tutorial.)

A matching headband pulls this quaint little dress altogether.  Soft elastic is attached to more flower-vine goodness, while an off-centered satin bow adds that “little something extra”.

Accessories:

Every mom wants their little one’s day to be memorable.  Let us help with our many accessories and embroidery options.  Listed below are some must-haves to create a notable and hassle-free day.

  • Camisole Onsie – not only do these hold baby’s diaper firmly in place during the ceremony, they are great for everyday use (get more and save with our 3-pack).  Have her initials monogrammed on the chest for a personal touch.
  • Cotton Diaper Cover – dainty satin-ribbon bows and cotton ruffles adorn the  legs.  And what could be more adorable than a cross, shamrock, or baby’s name embroidered on the bum!
  • Floral Initial Ruffle Bib – keep her dress pristine with a bib that looks as pretty as the dress.  The floral embroidery detail compliment the dress and the flourish initial makes it custom just for her.
  • Silver & Pearl Name Bracelet – divine fresh-water pearls and sterling silver beads encircle baby’s name, spelled in sterling silver letter blocks.  Add a cross charm and/or birthstone crystal to sparkle on her tiny wrist. Finally, a half-inch silver chain enables the bracelet to adjust for a lasting fit.

Have any embroidery done in your choice of white, baby pink, soft green, metallic gold, or silver thread.  White thread offers a subtle look, pink or green enhances her small features, while metallic gold and silver create a timeless feel.

Brand New Spring Lace Christening Gowns Design – Camilla

Spring is Here!

Spring showers may bring April flowers, but here at One Small Child, Spring also brings fresh new designs. After a long winter of hunkering down and feverishly working, we are excited to present each one. First up is our Camilla Christening Gown:

Camilla Lace Christening Gown by One Small Child

What’s in a Name?

The name Camilla originates as a Latin baby name.  It means noble; free-born; servant of the temple.  We believe we captured the epitome of each meaning with this satin and lace baby gown.

Gown Details…

The square neckline brings a sense of noble birthright, just as it did in the 17th century. From neckline to hem stretches a generous floral lace panel with a unique continuous flow.  Dual intricate glossy-looping trims each side to confirm superior craftsmanship.  Scalloped lace is the final framework as it cascades over the shoulders and circles around the back.  This is a flawless introduction to scalloping lace that waterfalls down three-quarter sleeves.

This gown is made with matte satin.  Our satin is a pure white and lustrous mid-weight fabric.  This combination of color and density makes for a temperature comfy baby on any Spring day.

A hand-gather waist and 3 buttons make up the back.  The gathering offsets the simplistic front design, while buttons make for dressing ease.  And finally, the hem is festooned with a double laced edge, and more glossy looped lace.

As a bonus, we include a matching baby christening bonnet.  An exaggerated ruffle softly brushes baby’s sweet face.  A thick satin band accentuates a fully-lined puff style bonnet.  The open back design is indicative of a vintage inspired headpiece. Thin triple strand satin ribbons tie under the chin for a secure fit.

Christening Accessories:

What could be better than a gorgeous christening gown for your little one’s special day?  How about matching accessories to complete the look.  For those who adore lace, pair our Lucy Christening Slippers with this gown.  Or maybe a little less frill is more to your liking, take a look at our Bow Christening Slipper in satin.  And last but not least, make sure baby stays warm with this glorious Satin Ruffle Blanket.

Don’t forget to check out the embroidery options for both the baby slippers and blanket.  Personalize one or both to commemorate baby’s special day!

Mom and Daughter Pearl Bracelet Set

As moms we love to be spoiled by our little ones on Mother’s Day. Breakfast in bed with maybe an eggshell or two, cuddles and a homemade card. But asking for gifts for something we love so very much is not something we do. But what if it was for something sentimental and a keepsake? Perfect for Mother’s Day: Mom and Daughter Pearl Bracelet Sets are a great way to share something sweet and simple with your little girl that will last over time. Then someday, she can pass it down to her little girl. But this gift could also be for a goddaughter, niece or any little girl that is special in your life. They could even be used for a flower girl! The possibilities are endless for something that is timeless and meaningful.

I remember those simple gifts over the years at memorable events that really made a difference for me. Things that I want my daughters to be able to see/use and know that I love them so much that I want them to enjoy something that I hold so dear to me. Those small glimpse in their memories will last forever and be a wonderful connection we’ll have through the years, even after they’e grown up.

Mother-child-pearl-bracelet mother child pearl bracelet set

Find the bracelets here for purchase. 

These bracelets are made of fresh water pearls, a sterling silver closure and made right here in the USA. If you have more than one little princess, you have the option to order more to go on everyone’s wrists. If this darling gift is for a Christening or Baptism we offer the ability to attach a cross charm as well. Mom and Daughter Pearl Bracelet Sets are a great start to traditions as well as one to begin even if they are not so little.
