Camisole Bodysuit - One Small Child

Christening Undercover

Have you given any thought to what goes under a christening gown or outfit? So much depends on what you’re working with and looking for. Is the fabric of your gown a light-weight sheer cotton or a heavy satin?  Is your gown short or long? Do you like a little extra pouf under a dress? Or do you just want good coverage beneath?

For your convenience, many of our christening gowns are included with an appropriate length slip made of pure combed cotton. If you choose a style that does not include a slip, or if you’re looking for just the right thing to wear beneath a family heirloom or a masterpiece you’ve crafted on your own, we offer a nice selection of christening slips a-la-carte in different styles and lengths:

Our basic cotton slip comes in two lengths and is perfect under any dress that needs a good lining, especially under sheer or hand-crocheted gowns. It is constructed with a cross-back, button free closure for ease of dressing baby.  This slip is available in two lengths to accomodate day-length (22-24″) as well as longer heirloom-length (32-34″) christening gowns. We can also make it in custom lengths for you–just let us know what you need, and we’ll be happy to whip one up for you (additional charges may apply for longer length). We offer a nice selection of embroidery options on this slip as well: you can have baby’s name and christening or birth date, a monogram, a cross, shamrock or meaningful phrase added to the hem, which adds a thoughtful, personal touch to a truly special outfit (you can see our current embroidery options on order pages).

Our exclusive bouffant slip adds a nice fulness to any gown, and can be worn beneath our basic cotton slip, or alone under the christening gown, depending on your preference. It is available in three lengths: dress-length, day-length, and heirloom-length. It’s perfect under gowns of all styles, whether simple or frilly.

We haven’t forgotten the boys–we offer a nice selection of long-sleeved, short-sleeved, and sleeveless bodysuits to provide coverage and a little additional warmth beneath any christening suit (bonus: personalization is also available on these items), so no matter how you look at it, when it comes to christening undergarments, we’ve got you covered. {wink}
