Silk Tess Christening Gown

Your Christening Gowns: Baby Valeria

Pretty Valeria’s mother sends her greetings from Germany!

“I was searching for a long time for a perfect christening gown for my newborn daughter. I found it on your website. All your gowns are magnificent. We chose the Candice. We also ordered the sweet little shoes and tights. Our daughter looked so pretty in it on the day of her baptism. I would also like to thank you for the great correspondence. I was so happy that I found you. Thank you so much.”

Note: our Candice has been discontinued.  Please see our Tess Dress picture above.  It is the same style just with a different lace trim.

Your Christening Outfits: Baby Elijah

Jessie sent her kind comments:

“I can’t think you enough for making this special occasion so perfect with the adorable Korbyn christening outfit. When I saw the Korbyn outfit on OneSmallChild.com I fell in love with it immediately, and Jenny with customer service was such a sweetheart and helped me with getting the outfit…on time. My eight-month-old son, Elijah, was comfortable and warm for the entire day, not to mention he looked absolutely adorable!”

Fall Christening Portrait Ideas

Your Christening Gowns: Baby Alli

Alicia, baby Alli’s mother, says,

“We recently baptized our daughter, Alli, on October 12, 2008. She was wearing the Alexa Rose christening gown from your site. We received so many compliments on the dress. It was incredibly well made and was of great quality.

I have attached a photo of Alli in the gown. She is also wearing a freshwater pearl bracelet that was ordered from your site and given to her as a gift.

Thank you so much for providing such quality christening gowns at an affordable price. I will be sure and pass along your website to my friends and family who are expecting.”

Your Baptism Gowns: Ana’s Daughter

Ana shares her note,

Writing…this small note to tell you how I was satisfied with your services! I am from Portugal, and my sister in United States was the one buying this dress over the internet! We had picked another one, and ordered, but right after we decided this one was more beautiful! She called you right away and you were great, allowing us to cancel the first order and make a better one.”

Lucy Lace Christening Gown

Your Christening Gowns: Baby Isabella

Angelic Isabella’s grandmother, Wendy, shares the following:

“I just wanted to say I had purchased the Lucy Gown for my granddaughter for her Christening on June 15th, 2008. I have to say when that dress came in, and I took it out of the box, my mouth opened and my heart dropped, this was the most beautiful gown I have ever seen. I also bought the shoes and socks and the bracelet with her name and everything I received was more than I expected. So many people commented and asked where I purchased that gown. You can bet I told everyone it was online at One Small Child…

Again, I want to thank everyone including the people who packaged the gown and accessories, you did a wonderful job, and I won’t hesitate in telling everyone where to go on their blessed event!!!”

Brakkin Silk Christening Outfit

Your Christening Outfits: Baby Dylan in ‘Brakkin’

Handsome little Dylan (in our Brakkin silk christening outfit) looks like he stepped out of the pages of an heirloom family album! Sharon writes,

“I can’t thank you enough for all your great service and beautiful christening outfits! Your quality is superb! I was so tired of going to many large retailers and boutiques looking for a nice Christening outfit for our Dylan, 7 months old. I was prepared to spend whatever it cost and still could not find anything beautiful. I found many nice outfits – but none that moved me or seemed worth the money. Out of desperation I started looking online and came across your site. Your prices are so reasonable and the quality is above and beyond anything I’ve seen. I purchased the outfit, socks, and shoes from you… He was baptized on Sept 28, 2008.

Thank you so much and I will recommend your company to everyone I know. Thanks again and God Bless.”

First Communion Dress

Your First Communion Dresses: Beth’s Daughter Wearing ‘Miss Shaylee’

Beth sent this picture of her lovely daughter along with her note:

“I had to write and tell you how pleased we were with the communion dress as well as your service. I ordered the Shaylee and wound up ordering two other dresses in different sizes (which should be on their way back to you.)

The dress exceeded expectations. It was absolutely gorgeous and everyone who saw my daughter in it thought so as well. It was a wonderful mixture of simplicity and beauty. My daughter felt very special for her first communion and the May crowning…

The pictures on your site do not do the dress justice-it absolutely shimmers in the sun light…Thank you for offering such a variety and for getting the second order to me so quickly.“

(Note: ‘Miss Shaylee’ is no longer available.)

Your Christening Gowns: Marisa’s Daughter in ‘Memory’


We received the following note along with this lovely portait back in 2006:

“I purchased the Memory christening gown for my daughter’s baptism back at the beginning of July. The gown took my breath away when it first arrived…it was simply everything I had dreamed of for my daughter! The lace was so very soft, and it looked like something I found in my grandmother’s attic!

After the baptism, I took my daughter to get her portrait taken in her gown. I just wanted to share the picture with you. The portrait looks like a family portrait from 100 years ago! The gown is magnificent, and the price just couldn’t be beat. We received so many compliments that day, but the main compliment was how many people asked if my daughter was in a 3rd or 4th generation gown!

I will gladly tell all my friends about your site, and I will be shopping again for holiday clothing and perhaps a flower girl dress for my mother’s St. Patrick’s Day wedding in 2007! Thank you so much for such a lovely, treasured heirloom that will be handed down with pride and love!”

Boy Christening Shoe

Finishing Touches: Christening Shoes

I have a confession to make. My darling boy was without shoes on his blessing day, because in the hustle and bustle of getting everything gathered and ready and caring for my newborn…I forgot to get some little white shoes! And I, of all people, really have no excuse for that! Good thing he has cute toes…

Oh, wait! No! You should not do as I do! You are much more on top of things, I am certain. It is for you that we’ve gathered an extensive collection of christening shoes in a broad range of sizes (from newborn to toddlers), styles, and materials.

Depending on your sizing needs, you can select shoes made from the same fabric as your christening outfit, or shoes in a shade to match your ivory gown. We offer leather styles, hand-crocheted booties, mary-janes, oxfords, and ballet slippers.

Here’s something else to consider: white shoes are available year-round at One Small Child–no worries about being out-of-season. So there’s no excuse! Don’t be like me: remember to get the shoes when you purchase your christening outfit, and we’ll all breathe a bit easier. 😉
