History of the Christening Gown

Christening Gowns became one of the works of art of the Victorian Era. They became elaborate in design, materials and fabric.

The infant christening was looked forward to with great anticipation and it was the time for large celebrations as well. The Church during that time insisted on babies being dressed in white as a symbol of innocence and purity.

These robes were creations of silk and satins with fine embroidery. During the early 19th century cotton became more readily available and became another popular favorite, thus the intricacy of special embroidery became more apparent and utilized. The designs mimicked the ladies fashions of that era as well.

By the mid 19th century Ayrshire designed work (fine white embroidery) was of fashion and became the decorations on the christening robes. Lace and pin tucks were sometimes used too. Accompanying the attire were bonnets that were highly decorated to match the gowns.

After most christenings the attire was carefully packed away and stored which was then handed down to generations to come.

Ordering the right size gown for baby…

Baby sizes vary, even with babies born on the exact same day, so care must be taken before buying gowns and robes for newborns.

The best advice is to buy the garment as near as possible to the big occasion itself. This way you ensure that it matches the child’s size in real time.

Even better, is to check with the parents of the new infant, thus ensuring an adequate fit. There is no point in spending lots of money on a gown that never gets used.

General guide to baby chest sizes…

Newborn=15 inches
3 Months=16 1/2 inches
6 Months=17 1/2 inches
9 Months=18 inches
12 Months=18 1/2 inches
18 Months=19 1/4 inches
24 Months=20 inches

Cotton Christening and Baptism Gowns

Cotton is a nice choice for a Christening or Baptism gown, especially in hotter weather. Cotton will keep your baby cool and comfy, and it offers a nice natural look that looks great in photos.
