I got the pattern for this Christening Gown designed by Kathleen Harell from my Mary Maxim catalogue. Persephone wore this for her Baby Blessing, which we had given during the Christmas Eve Service this year.
I really loved this pattern. Clothing is generally not my favorite to crochet, however this pattern was very easy to work up, very well written and easy to read. The bodice, which you can see better in the stock photo here, works up in one piece, from one side to the back to other side. This is done with increases for shaping at each shoulder. The sleeves and the skirt are both just worked onto the foundation of the bodice. Click on the stock photo to go to this pattern for sale on the Mary Maxim website.

I do love the christening gown. I would love to purchase a copy of the pattern as Mary Maxim no longer carry this kit. I have a person I would love to make this for.
I’m sorry but I don’t think that I can copy and sell the pattern as I believe there would be legal copyright infringement issues involved since the pattern would not yet fall under public domain. You might try contacting Mary Maxim though the website and see if there is a way for you to obtain it. http://www.marymaxim.com/contacts/ Best of luck!
