Sewing for this baby girl has been so fun! It isn't quite what I imagined (when is it ever?) but I am so happy to finally be sewing for a little girl! I still will sew for my boys but right now they are good with their clothes and as you can imagine after 4 boys I don't have any girl clothes ;0)
On my last post I mentioned baby gowns and this is the one I have made time and time again! I love it. It was the first knit fabric sewing pattern I ever used and it turned out great! I learned a lot from the pattern instructions and have never been scared of sewing knit fabric since.
The pattern I use is Kwik sew 3090. There are many free patterns that seem to be about the same (here for example) but I really the size range of this pattern and will use it probably forever! The fit of the neck is probably the best part, I hate it when gowns show the shoulder or slide off but this has never happened with this pattern. Also the fit everywhere is spot on so I never have to guess if its really going to fit that age.
I didn't use the sleeve option it comes with I just did a basic cuff.
I love gowns on newborns and even my older babies it makes it so easy to change at night and they are so much cuddlier with their tiny little feet and legs curled together <3
I'm not sure where I got the fabric but here is some that has owls and is so cute!
I'm getting excited to have our baby here only 7 weeks left!!!
