Irish Christening


Baby Items

Special Occasion


“Smocked Treasures” provided us with exactly what we were looking for: an exquisitely made and elegant baptismal ensemble for our little boy which will become a family heirloom. I found a number of sites that provided hand-made baptismal gowns, but kept re-visiting Smocked Treasures. It seemed to me that the available range was carefully selected to cater to many different tastes and I was impressed that Marianne offered so many hand-made choices so we could vary the design, ensuring a personalised service (which is a bonus for online purchases). I was delighted to search through the many designs on offer (a rare find for outlets offering boy’s outfits) -the only problem was deciding which one to purchase. Marianne responded promptly to my first email inquiry and I was immediately reassured by her warm, professional and thoughtful approach; I felt entirely comfortable with going ahead with the purchase. Marianne emails customers once an order is placed so that you have the opportunity to discuss any issues (eg for us, we needed to work out an “in-between” size); while Smocked Treasures is an online business, you can be assured of a personalised service. The final product was carefully packaged and the workmanship was of the highest standard. I can highly recommend Smocked Treasures to anyone who is looking for a special, outfit of high quality for their baby’s christening. Marianne’s creation for our little baby is absolutely beautiful.

Available Fabrics


Swatches of fabric available upon request. Please e-mail with your inquiry.

Silk Dupione

Dupione silk is an elegant, high-end fabric with a gorgeous texture and sheen. In comparison to other fabrics, silk is considered to be the most luxurious and regal looking. Most expensive of all available fabrics, this 100% silk is imported from India or China. Recommended: dry clean only.


This polyester fabric was created to mimic the look of silk and is a popular alternative for a pure white color, since silk is more ivory in color. It washes easily and is wrinkle resistant.

Linen Batiste

100% cotton, linen batiste is lightweight with the woven texture of heavierweight hankerchief linen.

Imperial Batiste

Cotton/polyester blend - Lightweight batiste that is wrinkle resistant and easily washed. Ideal for christening slips and accessories.


Made from 100% polyester fibers, this soft, sheer fabric is lined primarily with a material like satin to add to its beauty and weight or with a polyester lining for a lightweight, cool garment.


100% polyester - medium weight with a gorgeous shine.

Irish Linen

100% linen - "Belfast's Best" - Imported directly from Ireland, highest quality pure authentic linen has a gorgeous finish in a soft white color. Dry clean only.

Cotton Sateen

This special weave has a very smooth finish on one side; kind of a silky sheen and luster to normally dull cotton. It is finely woven with a silky drape. It is a great hybrid of cotton and silk, incorporating the breathability and moisture-wicking properties of cotton with the sheen of silk. Care Instructions: Machine wash gentle, tumble dry low.

Satin Charmeuse

Charmeuse is a lightweight polyester fabric woven with a satin weave. The front side of the fabric has a shiny satin finish - lustrous and reflective - whereas the back has a dull finish. Polyester charmeuse can often withstand machine washing, but it does not breathe as well as silk. Charmeuse differs from plain satin in that charmeuse is softer and lighter in weight.
