christening robe

Can anyone tell me how long and how wide the skirt should be? The design has
a yoke which includes the full armhole.
Thank You,
Mary

I have two christening patterns (both are both Vogue (1755 and 2675)). For length, one is 39", the other 37 1/4". For width, one is 62", the other is 53". On the shorter one, the length is minus a ruffle on the bottom, so finished with the ruffle it should be a couple inches more. Both lengths are finished back lengths from the base of the neck. HTH!

As long and as wide as you like! They are all different... The one my grandmother made for my mother had a skirt about 36" round and 20" long... My son wore it for his Christening. Just don't make it so bunchy and full that you can't see the baby for fabric!

It depends on the person being christened. If it's a babe-in-arms the skirt is usually full length, sometimes longer so that it trails. As for width, I'd say up to 2 widths of fabric if it's fine or less if not.
If course if the person being christened can crawl or walk you'll need a shorter skirt.
