Demi circle baby dress

Fall Collection: Demi Circle Skirt Christening Dress

Today we’re introducing the final addition to our Fall Collection 2015: The Demi…

Demi Circle Skirt Christening Dress

All About the Demi…

The Demi features a classic silhouette: capped sleeves and a fitted bodice. Made from embroidered taffeta, and fully lined, it makes the perfect little party outfit! What makes this dress so fun? The circle skirt! Circle skirts create natural ‘pleats’ and volume at the hem. It’s such a pretty, feminine look! A modern floral motif is embroidered with shiny thread. This creates a subtle sheen that offers dimension and visual interest. A little lace trim finishes the hem. Silk ribbon ties and a row of buttons fasten the back of the dress.

Complete Her Look…

We love these accessories for the Demi dress: The Bouffant Cami Slip is a bodysuit and a slip in one! This layering essential will add warmth and comfort from the bodysuit, and a little more volume from the bouffant slip.

A headband is an accessory necessity. We love the hand-made Tallie Headband for the Demi dress. With a silk ribbon rosette, tulle, and ostrich feathers galore…this headband is stunning.

The New Fancy Feathered Christening Gown by One Small Child

The new Fancy feathered christening gown really lives up to her name! Gorgeous feathers cascade down the skirt of this spectacular dress…

Fancy Feathered Christening Gown

All About the Fancy…

A simple capped-sleeve bodice is timeless. Made from bridal quality satin, it has a sheen that all but glows. Covered buttons fasten the back of the bodice. An wide satin ribbon belt accentuates the waistline for an extra feminine feel. It’s decorated with an organza rosette pin. The pin features a bough of feather and beaded plumes. A lengthy satin ribbon sash ties in back.

The skirt is absolutely stunning. Intricate embroidery, 3d organza flowers and ostrich feather plumes decorate this extra-long skirt. The pretty flowers are centered with sparkly beads for extra flair. So beautiful! The skirt is made from a soft, lustrous organza. Doesn’t it make the perfect background for all those details? The hem is finished with a soft, scalloped lace.

No look is complete without accessories. A large organza rosette with feather and bead plumes makes a fun finishing touch. The wide, stretchy lace headband is so soft and included with the gown.

A Vintage Inspired Christening Party – Revisited

Party-6026

We shopped our homes to pull together this eclectic little event. An unexpected location, some fun décor and yummy food created an easy vibe. A unifying color scheme made it easy to create a vintage vibe that really rocked when we added a few modern elements. Who knew a pitchfork and vintage trike could look so good?

Table-5857

This adorable bright ceramic bird, and painted feathers tied our table-scape together.

A burlap tablecloth is made elegant with a long lace runner. The silver candelabra, assorted glassware and bouquet of baby’s breath completed this fun table-scape.

We loved this Paper Pyramid Light Garland made by The Society of National Industry on Etsy. It was so easy to incorporate these sweet lights in our decor setting. They added warmth and a little twinkle to these rustic barn doors.

What do you wear to an eclectic, vintage event? An eyelet A-line dress, of course! We paired this one with ballet style leather moccs, tied up with lace. So adorable! Top it with a hand-made baby’s breath wreath and her outfit’s complete!

A collection of glassware in varied shades and heights made for an entertaining spread. What’s on the menu? These scrumptious sugar cookies were fabulous frosted, or without! How about a little custard on the side?

Layers upon layers made this stacked crepe cake. We topped it with fresh raspberries and a dust of sugar. It was A.MA.ZING. Click here for the recipe. We simplified a little by using prepared Bavarian Cream Pastry Filling instead of homemade…loved every bite!

Lace-tied candles added a sophisticated element to our table-scape. A little lemonade was a refreshing treat at this fun christening brunch.

The Norah: A Custom Designed Gown

Our new Norah Dress has such a wonderful story behind it that we want to share with you.  This is how this beautiful custom designed gown came to be:

Lindsey is someone who I have looked up to for many years.  When I started the adoption journey over 6 years ago, Lindsey’s blog therhouse was light in a dark world of unknowns.  Adoption is exciting and scary all at the same time.    Lindsey’s blog educates people on what a healthy open adoption looks like.  It shows you how incredible birth parents are.  Birth parents are often times greatly misunderstood, and Lindsey’s mission in life is to change the stigma.  Birth parents are incredible people with a great love for their children.

LindseyRhouse{Lindsey, Norah, and Norah’s Birth Mom}

Lindsey has four children, all through the miracle of adoption.  Three boys and one baby girl call her Mama.  My third child and Lindsey’s third child even share a birthday.  How cool is that!?!  When Lindsey adopted her fourth child, her first little girl, I knew I wanted to help design her dress.  I was ecstatic when Lindsey whole-heartedly agreed.  Together we came up with a unique design made just for Norah.DesignSketch1

We started with some sketches of our basic idea. Isn’t it amazing to see how much the design evolves when you compare the first sketch to the final product?

DesignSketch2

 The next step was to draft the technical drawings. This gives us a more in-depth idea of how to construct the gown. From this, we made our first sample. Lindsay and I shared pictures back and forth via text.

Lindsey has a love for lace and asked that we incorporate that in the gown. We went searching for something fabulous and found this gorgeous Venice lace for the Norah.

  It was such an enjoyable experience to design a gown with a woman who I truly look up to.  She was SO fun to work with!  Stay tuned for images of Norah’s special day.

One Small Child Fall Collection: Norah Hi-Low Christening Dress

Norah Hi-Low Christening Dress

All About the Norah…

Can we just say we love this hi-low christening dress! Every detail adds to the magnificent look of the Norah. A satin bodice provides a pretty sheen. Lace trim accentuates the waistline. Sweet layers of flowing organza cascade on the hi-low style skirt. Each tier is finished with a dainty lace trim. Adorable bell sleeves are trimmed with matching lace. Two tiny satin ribbons tie at the back, along with the button-back closure. A matching bonnet features gathered satin and a lace trim. Thin satin ribbon ties secure the bonnet.

Accessorize the Norah…

To complete her occasion outfit, may we suggest:

The Norah Headband. A twisted cluster of beads atop a satin band. This headband is adorable!

The Lacy Camisole Bodysuit. A pretty lace panel decorates the bodice of this super soft bodysuit. Our signature camisole style ensures bulky sleeves won’t be bothersome for layering underneath all baby’s outfits!

The Lucy Slippers. These comfy crib shoes are made from shimmery nylon lace and fully lined with soft cotton fleece. The Lucy Slippers co-ordinate beautifully with the Norah Gown.

The Satin Ruffle Blanket. Keep baby warm and cozy without ruining the regal effect of her occasion gown. A fleece-lined satin blanket is just as fancy as her outfit! It can even be personalized with any of our embroidery options!
