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 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, flourish, geometric, scroll, or simple font for an eye-catching appeal.


Personalization is placed on the slip, making it easy to add more 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.

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.  Queen Victoria prompted the creation of this lace in the late 1800’s after dubbing her son-in-law Duke of Battenburg.  Batten lace has been at the root of Victorian design ever since.


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!
