Sean Traditional Baby Boy Christening Gown

Our newest baby boy christening gown design will pull you back into a time of cobblestone streets and quaint French villas.  Made with 100% broadcloth cotton this heirloom gown has a summer breeze feel, with a crisp smooth finish that even grandma will approve of.   Additionally, the Sean bodice features generous pintucks that are enhanced with decorative cotton-covered buttons.  It then is made complete with a classic pointed-collar; offering your little mister a masculine touch that dad will appreciate.  Also, double-layered two inch waist-band introduces a 32-33” traditional length skirt.  Finally, incorporated into this length is entredeux (French term meaning “between two”) trim.  This deluxe trim is used on each each sleeve cuff, as well as above our diamond cross-stitched hem for an old-world feel.


Christening & Personalization

Heirloom-style open backed design allows for dressing ease, while a cotton slip adds a secure underlayer.  Not only does our soft cotton slip add a plush extra layer, it can also be personalized.  Embroider baby’s full name and date to commemorate the special day.  Or if you prefer something more customary, we offer time-honored 3-letter monogramming.  Your little man’s initials can be done in a circle, diamond, geometric, scroll, or flourish font for an eye-catching appeal.  Personalization is placed on the slip and makes adding more embroidery convenient as your family grows.  To make this christening, baptism, or blessing gown the “cream of the crop” we’ve added a sweet visor hat that features more diamond cross-stitching.  In addition to cotton-covered buttons at the sides, this infant visor hat caters to your baby’s natural charm.

Matching Shoes

Even with all of this, we could not stop there; this adorable infant boys christening gown needed matching shoes.  These fully-lined shoes give wiggle room for tiny toes, all the while wrapping them in ultimate comfort.  A cotton-covered button fastened to the outside of the shoe secures a diamond cross-stitched strap.  This simple design is the perfect finishing touch for our Sean gown.


Christening Gown Margaret, Baptism Dress, Christen

All the intricacies of the Margaret Christening Gown…

This 100% cotton broadcloth christening gown has countless details. Each one has been refined and passed down through the ages!  Pin-tucking has always had a place on the clothing of histories elite.  The Margaret skirt panel pintucks are no exception, giving this baby girl christening gown an overall vintage charm.  Also, a generous ruffle hem, ruffle bonnet, and dainty puff sleeves offer a simple splendor.  Vintage Battenberg lace decorates the bodice and sleeve cuffs.  In addition, this same lace is featured on the heirloom-length skirt providing perfect symmetry.   Also, cotton covered buttons drape down the back, allowing for effortless dressing.


More Details…

Also, a one inch satin-ribbon sash offers a custom fit.  Intricate lace insertions on the skirt paneling add a delicate touch.  Such a gorgeous baby gown is not for christenings alone.  It also makes for an ideal baptism dress, blessing gown, baby photo shoot, wedding, or any other special occasion.  Finally, our included Regal Length Slip offers extra layer luxury and subtle volume.

Our Margaret Christening Gown is a One Small Child exclusive and cannot be found anywhere else.  Plus, try our 3-letter monogram or shamrock embroidery to transform exclusive into “one-of-a-kind”. Personalization is added to the skirt’s center panel with your choice of colored thread.  Choose between classic silver, royal gold, Irish green, or baby-soft pink.  Each gown is handcrafted by highly experienced seamstresses, ensuring every effort is made for lasting resilience and impeccable presentation.  A prep-team inspects, steams, and neatly packages each order to be sent directly to your door–all ready to go for the special event.  Another added bonus: we know family time is precious, so this ageless baptism gown is designed with easy-to-wash convenience.  Just give it a gentle hand wash, and hang or lay flat to dry–it’s that easy!

Customer Highlight: The Lucy Christening Gown

We’re highlighting an adorable little one today. She’s wearing our fancy Lucy Christening Gown. Read all about her special day below.

Customer Highlight: Lucy Gown

How did you find One Small Child?

I found One Small Child with a Google search. It was one of the first links that caught my eye.

Customer Highlight: Lucy Gown

Was the purchasing simple and hassle-free?

Purchasing from One Small Child was very simple, with no hassle at all. I was also able to have a great conversation with an associate of One Small Child prior to purchasing. Communication was simple and hassle free as well!

Customer Highlight: Lucy Gown

What did you look for in a photographer?

Since I am a photographer, I did the photos of my daughter. I was going for a clean, minimal look that captured the beauty and sweetness of my daughter as well as the lovely gown and bonnet she was wearing.

Customer Highlight: Lucy Gown

What images of your event were important for you to capture?

We just had someone take some snapshots during the actual ceremony. The baptism took place during mass. We were able to get some shots with big brother, who made his First Communion that day as well.

Customer Highlight: Lucy Gown

What was the planning process like for your little one’s big day?

We spoke with the church committee and planned to do the baptism during mass, the same day my son made his First Communion, as we had family in town visiting. It was quaint and quick…but very special. The biggest task was finding the perfect dress-and One Small Child made that easy!

Customer Highlight: Lucy Gown

What did you want it to feel like/theme to be?

We wanted to have a simple service without stress. We had just built and moved in to our first home a week prior, and Daddy was getting ready to leave to go overseas. The less complicated, the better for us!

Customer Highlight: Lucy Gown

Did you provide a meal to friends and family afterwards?

All of our close friends and family went out for the evening to Olive Garden for dinner. It was nice to relax, celebrate, and not have to worry about catering the party. I also had a gorgeous, yummy cake made for dessert!

Customer Highlight: Lucy Gown

Was there a particular moment that was memorable on that day aside from the event itself?

It was a wonderful feeling to have all our friends and family together to celebrate. Simply put, felt very blessed!

Customer Highlight: Lucy Gown

Are you going to preserve and/or frame your babies’ gowns?

I plan to get the gown preserved this month. I am hoping that one of my three children will want to use it for their daughter one day.

Looking back, was there anything you would do differently?

Not a thing!
