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:
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.
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.
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.
