Design by Kathy Barnard from The Best of Sew Beautiful Christening Gowns
Aiden's Choice is the perfect christening gown for a boy. This ensemble of Swiss cotton batiste fabric consists of a bubble suit with a removable skirt, both ornamented with shaped bias strips of blue batiste and machine-embroidered crosses (this allows for a more formal and traditional outfit for the christening and after the ceremony, provides your baby with a lovely little bubble suit to wear separately). Sleeves are short, cap sleeves with cuffs trimmed in blue batiste piping, which also trims the collar. A choice of design, stitched in either white or blue, adorns the center of the yoke bias shaped design. The piped waistband of the full, gathered skirt with slip is attached to the bubble suit with four buttons. The back yokes of the bubble suit are fastened with four buttons. The leg openings of the bubble suit have casings through which elastic is run; a crotch placket is fastened with three buttons. For a more gender neutral appearance, choose ivory or soft yellow accents.
Available in 6 and 12 month sizes
