Top 3 Fabrics for Baptismal Dresses

Choosing baptismal dresses for children has always been an important task. Baptismal dresses are mostly beautiful, but the truth is that some are downright uncomfortable.

Here, I put my 3 top material picks that will keep baby snug and smiling.

Cotton is just wonderful to wear. It is breathable and comfortable compared to other types of fabrics. It has been a top pick among different types of fabrics, and nowadays, cotton is being used in creating formal wears in the fashion arena and in formal occasions. Cotton fabrics are also resistant to abrasion and tearing, thus, can last long. As an added plus, the fabric allows for easy stain removal. Baptismal dresses made of cotton add to the resiliency of the garment. Because it is easy to handle, the gown can be kept for years on as an heirloom.

I just love the luxurious sheen of silk. Yes, silk is associated to luxury, but it is also very comfortable to the skin, and what I love most is that it drapes well. Think silk pajamas. The fabric is also a good choice for baptismal dresses since it looks elegant even without lace, beading, and designs. Because silk fabric feels natural against our skin due to smoothness and softness, baptismal gowns made from silk are one of the top choices if moms for their babies' christening gowns. Thus, baby feels more comfortable and relax throughout the baptismal ceremony. On the downside, stains on silk are difficult to remove. And without proper care, silk will yellow over time. So after use, dry clean the dress or hand wash. Silk fabrics are easily weakened by sunlight and extreme heat so it is adviseable to let the silk gown dry in a cool, dry place.

Organza is another fabric that will keep your child comfortable. Like cotton, it is a breathable and sturdy fabric. It is an elegant choice, especially if you'd like to store the dress for generations to come. But it is also prone to turning yellow and some colors may bleed. Should this happen, gently hand wash the garment or dry clean, dry, and it will be like new.

Elegant and beautiful baptismal dresses or christening gowns should not be used only once. It should be used again and passed on as an heirloom, like passing on beautiful memories from generation to generation, memories that are kept on a beautiful christening gown.
