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.

Eternity LDS Blessing Dress from One Small Child

We love creating new baby clothes for you! Today, we get to introduce our newest special occasion dress-the Eternity. This precious A-line was made especially for our owner/designer’s youngest daughter (isn’t she adorable) who wore it for a very special religious occasion.  It is absolutely perfect for an older baby that is on the move.  Katy specifically designed this dress for her walking baby.

All about the Eternity…

A simple scoop neckline and A-line shape allows exquisite embroidered netting lace to steal the show. And does it ever! Embroidered netting is a very delicate, open and light fabric that’s created by twisting, knotting, or weaving threads together at regular intervals. This process creates an absolutely gorgeous lace. The lace is showcased in the elbow-length sleeves and the extended hemline. We love the modern pointed scallops! Katy selected an amazing diamond silk taffeta for the dress lining. It’s super soft and the subtle sheen is stunning. Covered buttons close at the back.

Accessorize…

The Eternity lds blessing dress includes a pretty headband. It features a hand-tied bow made from diamond silk taffeta. Raw-edge netting creates a beautiful base and adds flair. It all rests on a comfy elastic band.

Looking for more accessories to complete her look? We’ve designed a matching bonnet and slippers to complete her look. The Eternity bonnet is made from the same embroidered netting lace. It boasts a modern, slim ruffle brim with lace trim is a super feminine design. Thin satin ribbon ties comfortably secure the pretty hat at baby’s chin.

The new Eternity Slippers are made to match using the same embroidered netting lace. These pretty crib shoes are made for comfort with a cotton flannel construction. A soft elastic band is gathered into a pretty ruffle, for a little feminine flair. You can purchase the Eternity Bonnet and Eternity Slippers separately.

This gown and accessories will be available as a limited edition.  This dress is perfect for any special occasion.

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!
