Hi,
I am looking for a pattern to make baptism clothing for adults. I have been searching the internet to no avail. The church I go to is using old choir gowns in various colors. I think the typical color is white. And since my church does an emersion baptism, the choir robes have a tendency to float up. When I was baptized several years ago in another State, I believe we had a drawsting pant with long, loose-fitting top. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Maybe a scrubs pattern?

If I stitch fast enough, does it count as aerobic exercise?

caftan, for sure. One size fits all. Just line or make sure the person wears something under it since white, when we, is vewy wevealing.

I agree with JenSews, scrubs sound like a good bet, or maybe a "pajama" pattern like this one Butterick 6885 done up without the pocket and maybe with the shirt hem sewn straight?

This caftan pattern mccalls 4002 might also do the trick, but personally I don't like it quite as much.

What kind of fabric will you use? I don't have suggestions, but I'm curious about how to negotiate between the "see through when wet" issue and the "really heavy when wet" issues!

ETA, obviously I agree with Janie, too, who posted while I was typing!

What do you think of contacting one of the mega-churches, perhaps in your denomination? They have baptisms all the time and have figured out what works best...

This site offers some interesting possibilities and it addresses transparency (lined robes or wearing additional clothing under the budget robes) and weighted hems. The culotte idea looks like it would work. NAYY

The church where I was baptized (as a teen) used heavy navy-blue robes, and they supplied underwear, too.

What a great idea. I research some the popular pattern companies and see what I can come up with. I was hoping someone would know of some offbeat pattern company who actually produced Baptism clothing. But I think I'm out of luck on this one.

Thank-you so much for responding. I am getting some really good ideas to "improvise". I priced some of the ready-made Baptism clothing, and they are very expensive. I am hoping to be able to make the clothing for much, much less.

Thank-you so much for responding. I checked out your suggestions and really like the idea of using a pajama pattern or perhaps mixing and matching the caftan and the pajama pattern to come up with what I am looking for. Thanks again!

WOW! What a great website to get ideas. I think I can now sort of mix and match patterns to get the look my church is looking for.
