Just as the title really.

I am 5ft nothing size 12, hates my arms so something to cover them would be great!

I'm looking for a christening outfit too so can't help I'm afraid. Not helped by the fact I'll be 16 wks pg with dc2 and no idea how big bump will be.
Monsoon have some nice ones in, but I appear to be between sizes ATM. Same with phase eight, who have a sale on if that helps.

As a fairly regular churchgoer I would say don't go overboard. Whenever there is a christening at church the christening party are dressed far more smartly than the congregation. I would just buy something you can wear again.

I agree with not going too dressy
A pretty top, trousers and blazer would be lovely

Even a shirt and fitted trousers (monsoon have a lovely bird print shirt)

I would wear a work dress and some pretty jewellery

Would be perfect
