Payton Suspender Outfit

Payton Suspender Christening Outfit Boy Baptism Outfit Blessing Outfit

We love our popular Landen Suspender Baptism Outfit so much we couldn’t resist creating a similar style.  The One Small Child design team constructs each outfit with baby’s comfort in mind.  Although, this time we wanted to combine class with ultimate comfort.

Christening & Comfort

Who doesn’t love a day in their pajamas?  This question is what inspired our new handsome Payton Suspender Christening Outfit.  It gives baby’s that cozy pajama feel, while making them look dashing at the same time.  Uber soft cotton rib-knit pants supply ultra pj comfort for your baby boy.  Also, giving mom the freedom to snuggle her little one in softness without the stress of wrinkles.  A matching rib-knit tie adds an adorable factor.  Not only that, but it is removable–oh the convenience!  In addition, adjustable baby suspenders are not only “all the rage”, but are positively charming.

Christening Style

This baptism outfit also includes a crisp “big boy” pointed-collar button up shirt.  The best part is, it’s a bodysuit!  Three snaps make diaper changing a breeze, and also secures the shirt in place. As a result baby never comes untucked during the big day, no matter who is holding him.  Most of all, the baby shirt adjusts for warm and cold seasons.  Customers have their choice of a long sleeve shirt, or a short sleeve.  Furthermore, the left sleeve cuff can be embroidered with initials to give and overall personal touch!

A little something extra…

And finally, add the matching newsboy cap for a look no one will be able to resist.  It is made from the same rib-knit cotton as the pants and tie.  Not only does this foster an impeccable match, it also offers an authentic old-world New York newsboy appeal.  Select a custom fit from 2 different sizes: Small (0-9 months) or Large (12-24 months).

Preserving your Christening Gown or Suit

Your beautiful event is now over. All the guests have now gone, the decorations have been taken down and all those thank you cards are sent. There’s just one more thing on your to-do list: preserving your Christening gown or suit. So, what are the best methods of storage for your precious gown? Are there any preservation tips or tricks? How do you keep your gown looking crisp for siblings or generations to come? Today, we’ll teach you how to preserve and store your Christening gown or outfit the right way.

Step 1-Dry clean or hand-wash the baptism gown or blessing outfit as directed on the clothing tag. Why? Stains and body oils can irreparably discolor the fabric. If your item calls for a hand-wash, avoid using harsh soaps, chlorine bleach, fabric softeners, and starch. Rinse the christening dress or outfit well to remove detergent residues.

Step 2-Once the gown or outfit is completely dry, stuff it with clean, acid-free tissue; this will help prevent hard creases that can weaken the fabric. Fold additional tissue into pleats and slip it between layers of fabric.

Step 3-Place the christening outfit in a 100 percent cotton muslin garment bag. Plastic or vinyl bags are unacceptable for long-term preservation since garments need to breathe. For this same reason, you should not seal or wrap a cardboard box containing heirloom christening clothing. Never pack mothballs with your christening apparel since they can ruin fabric over time. Also avoid storing the christening suit or gown with metal items. If you have purchased a bracelet for your special occasion, you can find the perfect display frame here. It’s a good idea to label your storage container (if it is not already monogrammed or personalized) with your child’s name and event or birth date.

Step 4-Store the christening gown in a dark, cool, dry place (for example, in a closet or under a bed). Avoid storing the box or bag in places where temperature or humidity may fluctuate seasonally (for example, a garage or attic). The ideal storage place has a relative humidity of 55 percent and a temperature of about 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

It is a good idea to check your outfit once in a while to ensure that it is maintaining its beauty. When you handle your christening heirloom, wear cotton gloves–skin oils can discolor fabric.

When you wish to use your treasured christening gown or outfit again, remove it from the storage container and air it out for several days. You may need to steam the item to remove wrinkles; iron only as a last resort, and only on a very low setting.

That’s all there is to it. Now you know how to preserve and store your Christening gown or outfit for generations to come!

How to measure your baby's torso

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!
