Hello All,

I have been all over the internet, and I've looked at light-n-life publishing, orthodoxmarketplace.com, conciliarpress, and I cannot find a baptism gown for my grandson ANYWHERE, help!

Thank you to anyone who can help.

Also, this is embarrassingly late, but I can't remember if I thanked everyoned who replied to my questions on my grandson's baptism a couple months ago, and I really appreciated the answers and nice stories. This is a terrific site!

God bless you all, Happy Thanksgiving!

I don't know where to buy a baptismal gown, but my Siberian godmother sewed up two for my baptism-both long, white,opaque, thick, and very modest affairs. One was for the actual baptism and the other, which was identical, I changed into afterwards so as to be modest during the chrismation ceremony.

Do you like any of these?

This site seemed to have a nice range of prices:


(Geez these things are expensive! Now I know why they pass them down from one generation to another! That's just good Ukrainian economics!! lol)

My mother-in-law bought both my daughter's and my son's outfits through JC Penney.  They're very nice quality for a decent price.  I searched under "Christening" for those.
