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.

How To Measure Your Baby For A Christening Outfit

How to Measure Your baby For A Christening Gown

One of the most common questions we get is, “What size should I order for my baby?” It’s normal to feel uncertain when trying to gauge exactly what size to select when you don’t have the actual gown or outfit in your hands. Fortunately, we’ve been doing this a long time, and we have a lot of experience in helping you make your decision.

Our christening gowns and outfits are sized in a traditional infant size range: Newborn, 3 month, 6 month, 9 month, 12 month, 18 month, and 24 month. These size names can be misleading: it makes sense to think, “If my baby is 6 months old, he’s going to wear a size 6 month outfit.” However, every baby is unique. You may have a thin, petite 9 month-old who perfectly fits a size 6 month gown, or a chubby little cherub who’s rocking size 12 month at the ripe old age of 6 months.

For this reason we always encourage our clients to measure their babies and refer to the size charts listed on the ordering page for each of our christening styles.

Here’s what you’ll need to gather to measure your baby:
-the baby (you want to be sure he/she is unclothed or close to it…measuring over a snug-fitting undershirt is fine; over a heavy top is not)
-a blanket or other comfortable surface on which to work (be sure baby won’t roll off an elevated surface)
-a soft measuring tape (if you don’t have a flexible tape, you can use a piece of string, and compare it to a ruler or construction measuring tape)

For both christening gowns and outfits, you’ll need a chest measurement. Wrap the tape just below baby’s underarms, and pull it snug (not too tight). Make sure the measurement is as accurate as possible.

How to Measure Your Baby's Chest

For christening rompers, you’ll need both the chest measurement and the torso measurement demonstrated below. The torso measurement is the most important metric to guarantee a correct fit. Place the end of the tape at the point where his neck meets his shoulder, and measure down to the bottom of his diaper.

How to Measure Your Baby's Torso

It’s a simple process, but can get complicated pretty quick with a squirmy child…it’s okay if you need to take the measurement a couple times to verify accuracy.

How to Measure a Squirmy Baby

Once you’ve got your numbers, check them against the size chart for the particular style(s) you’re interested in. All size charts are found on a tab in the lower left-hand corner of the product ordering page. Many of our size charts list a weight range as well as the measurements–this is for reference only, if in doubt, go with the measurements.

Once you’ve tackled this job, you’re well on your way to acquiring the perfect outfit for Baby’s special day!

About Fabric

Shopping for christening gowns and baptism outfits online has its advantages (convenience of 24/7 shopping, large selection of styles and and sizes) and disadvantages, one of the biggest being that you can’t actually *feel* your selections before ordering them. We get that!

To offset that challenge, we’ve provided detailed descriptions of the fabrics we use in each garment. To find this information, just look under any listing’s description.  It will be in the star bulletin named “Fabric”.  You can also get a detailed description of each fabric by going to our fabrics description page. The fabric will be listed in columns, along with a short description of the textile.

In addition to the information found on each page, we proudly offer an unparalleled return policy with no re-stocking fees!

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

Choosing an outfit for baby’s christening or blessing is different for everyone. Sometimes, you know the perfect gown or outfit when you see it and there are no questions. Then again, there are times you have so many options you just don’t know which way to turn!

We understand that it can be difficult to make such a big decision based on two-dimensional pictures…it’s important to be able to see and touch and compare in person. With that in mind, we gladly offer the option to purchase up to three styles (or sizes…if that baby is in-between) to review at your convenience.

Here’s how it works:

  • If you are unsure which christening gown/baptism outfit style or size you need, order up to 3 of your favorites. (You will pay for all items shipped at the time of your order, but no worries–our return process is easy!)
  • After you receive your order, make your choice in the comfort of your home.
  • When you’ve made your decision, simply return the unwanted items within 15 days of their arrival in your home. No need to expedite return shipping, just have them in the shipper’s hands within the 15 days. We recommend you use a trackable shipping service, so delivery can be verified.
  • Your card will be refunded when we recieve your return (please note: return transactions can take 7-10 days to appear on your bankcard statement).
