Our Traditional Style William Baptism Gown for Baby Boys!

William Silk Christening Gown by One Small Child

Great Baptism Gown Before–even Better now!

Our William Baptism Gown has been a classic for the past decade. This Spring we wanted to revamp this beloved style to make it even better.  First off, we started by adding a matching hat.  Made with the same 100% dupioni silk that the gown is, this visor hat merges modern, tradition, and masculine into one adorable accessory.  Uniquely ornate braid trim halo’s the brow with silk covered buttons at the sides.

A pointed shirt-collar adds another modern twist, while the folded shirt cuffs bring an antique element.  Another old-world detail is the wide band affixed to the bottom of the bodice.  Braid trim atop the band adorns the front, and a double-buttoned closure secures the band in the back–very vintage!

The length of the skirt is designed to be heirloom length, going far beyond baby’s tiny toes.  Depending on the size, this gown goes from 32″ to 33″ from the tip of the shoulder, down to the bottom of the hem.  Speaking of the hem, you will love the pin-tuck and braid features that hover above the 3″ hem.

And finally, we included a soft combed-cotton slip for an extra layer and extra comfort.  The sleeveless style top ensures a perfectly hidden, non-bulky addition.  It also has a crisscross back design for dressing ease.  Embroider baby’s name and event date on the hem.  You can even add names to the slip as this heirloom quality gown passes to new generations.

Baptism Gown Accessories

Want to complete this look?  We have got you covered.  Our 100% dupioni silk booties, fully lined with a 100% cotton, are an ideal match for this gown.  Another great addition is our dupioni silk baby blanket.  It is lined with cloud-soft cotton fleece.  Your baby will love the way it feels against their skin, and you will love the way it looks.
