This beautiful short sleeve christening gown has lovely detailed panels, and matching hemline, threaded with very delicate satin ribbon. Would be suitable for a either baby girl or boy. This pattern would also look adorable as short dress which could be worn for that very special occassion. The pattern is relatively simple, although looks quite complicated, and would not take a great deal of time to knit up for your child's christening. Would definitely become an heriloom gown that could be passed on to generation after generation. Pattern includes dress, matching bonnet and shoes.
