The christening gown is made top down in rows. The top of the gown is closed with ribbons to make the gown possible to use for a range of sizes in your family. The skirt should not be closed - when you carry the child, the skirt will drape beautifully.
The skirt and yoke has a beautiful leaf pattern made in post double crochet. The edge of the skirt has a wavy edge that looks amazing when the child is carried.

Pattern is written and there are charts for the leaf pattern on the yoke and skirt.
