The Newborn Baby Layette
Let this pattern become your ‘go-to’ pattern for newborn baby layettes.
Included in pattern: a traditional baby nightie, burp cloth, bunny gift washcloth, receiving blanket, hooded towel, change pad and a toque!

The traditional nightie can be smocked or not and has three sleeve lengths. It can be made in batiste, flannel or soft fine cotton knit. New moms with little time for pressing will love you for an easy-care garment made of knit fabric! But don’t let the term nightie fool you – this gown could be a little dress, a day gown, or Christening gown. Just change the length and fabric. It can be embellished with laces and Swiss embroideries or a monogram, embroidery or enhanced in any fashion you wish. Three smocking designs are included.

The burp cloth, receiving blanket, change pad and hooded towel are so easy and can be finished with binding or any method you choose.

The toque/beanie is similar to those worn by newborns in many hospitals today and can be made of rib knit fabric or plain knit. The cuff can be embellished with embroidery, cross-stitch or smocked motif to coordinate with the gown.

And who could resist the little bunny wash cloth? You will want to make several of these once you see how easy and cute they are.

A few yards of material can yield a beautiful, coordinated baby layette! Pack it all along with newborn diapers and baby wipes into a wicker basket or decorated box and you have a wonderful baby shower gift!!

Sizes: 3lbs., 5lbs., 8lbs., 11lbs.

Sunkissed is a pattern with loads of options. It started out as a simple little sundress. But then it grew into a romper and then a romper with a “float”. The float became a sun top and the bottom of the romper turned into a diaper cover.
Turn the sundress into a pinafore or jumper with the addition of a T-shirt or sweater or team it up with a coordinating onesie to take it into a year-round garment. There are just so many ways to make it up.
The pattern includes three easy smocking designs and can be made in a variety of fabrics. Mix and match prints and solids for unique results. Make it your own and let your imagination run free!

The Preemie Baby Boy's Bonnet
Presenting a preemie-sized baby boy’s bonnet for smocking or not!
The pattern includes sizes for 1 pound to 5 pounds baby boys. There are three smocking design plates and a plain insert for those who wish to embellish or embroider rather than smock. There are suggestions for other ways to embellish this wee bonnet and tips to make the micro piping. It is just waiting for you to stitch.
This is an excellent project for the Wee Care Program or other such programs.

Sizes: 1lb., 2lb., 3lb., 4lb. & 5lb.

Price: $8.00
Call it a playsuit, a sun suit, overalls, dungarees, a romper, or painter’s pants; it all depends on where you live and perhaps the season. With easy buttoned shoulders and optional back belt, you can choose to smock an insert or employ another technique. A cute back pocket is another stylish option.
This little outfit is great for both little boys and girls alike who love to play. Team it up with a little shirt, T-shirt, cardigan or hoodie for cooler weather and in the summer it can “go it alone”.
Colour and fabric can easily make it a little girl’s or boy’s outfit. Imagine it in a multi-coloured stripe or a cute floral print or corduroy. But even little girls wear denim these days!
Let your imagination go wild and have fun with this pattern. How many ways can you create it?

Cute, pert and easy to wear this little girl’s mini dress is suitable for good quality interlock knits as well as good quality cotton or other easy care fabrics. This little dress is designed for busy new moms who want clothes that go from the washer to dryer and are ready to wear.

It features very simple styling with bias bound scoop neckline and little cropped sleeves. The dress front is gathered into the neckline and the sleeves are slightly gathered at the cap. It has an easy back opening and the underarm pleats add a bit of fullness to the skirt. You can easily lengthen or shorten the dress as desired. With its simple shaping turning the hem is a breeze and there are so many ways to do so. An optional pocket has been included.

The dress can also be made sleeveless with armhole binding. Team it up with leggings, tights or shorts if you like. Or treat it like a jumper and add a long sleeved onesie.

Lullaby, An Infant Sleep Sacque
This little Sleep Sacque is the new way to dress Baby for bed - your answer to no-blanket baby sleepwear. Paired with a T-shirt, it is a great replacement for a baby nightie, ensuring warmth without blankets which can be kicked off in the night. Make it from soft cotton fabrics, flannel or knits depending on the season and climate. The side zipper makes diaper changing easy - even with a squirming baby in the dead of night! The pattern is sized by weight and chest measure rather than age for more accurate fit. Birth weights vary so greatly these days that age-sizing becomes meaningless. The pattern is also easily shortened or lengthened or width increased for traditional smocking. Make one but be prepared for requests for more!
New smockers: Instructions for dot-free, pleater-free smocking have been included!

Sizes 5lb., 9lb., 14lb., 20lb. & 26lb.

Infant Snowdrift

Smock it in the front or front and back, lavish it with lace for an heirloom look or just leave it plain to let the fabric tell the story. The pattern has been designed to be made from broadcloth-weight fabrics but don’t let this hold you back! Be creative and see what you can do. There are lots ideas of how to make this pattern “your own” within the Designer’s Notes section of the pattern. For instance there is the cutest variation for adapting it to batiste that incorporates a built-in slip! Little Diaper Cover Panties with a bias cut panel in back and an optional tab in front have been included in the pattern. The sizing runs from infants 11 lbs., 14 lbs., 20 lbs., to 26 lbs. Three design plates have been included for those for you who love to smock.

Infant Wardrobe I
Special Occasion Dressing. Not all fathers want a christening gown lavished with lace for their baby boys. And not all little girls are cut out for frilly dresses. This pattern gives you another option for special occasion dressing for both boys and girls. There is a simple collarless jacket with pockets, dress pants with optional pockets, a tailored shirt that can be ruffled for girls and a "Scottish" kilt and tam for dress occasions for a baby who doesn't want pants. There are many ways to do up each of these pieces so they can be as tailored as you please or dressed up with lace tucks or smocking. Imagine a tiny velvet jacket with a tartan kilt or 'trews' and a beautiful silk shirt with a tiny bow tie or a lace-edged jabot. What could be more attractive on a baby at a wedding or for Christmas? Or do the outfit all in white linen, piqué or silk for a Christening. For a funky look, do the mix of prints, plaids and checks that are currently in vogue. You can be as bold as you like and use up some of your quilting fabrics for fun dressing and everyday clothing. You don’t have to be Scottish to wear a kilt! Remember, kilts and tams are traditional military wear for men. Each piece is so much fun to create! The pattern is sized by weight and chest measurement not age as not all babies are born at six pounds! There is lots of wearing ease as well to make dressing baby easier and the pieces are easy to lengthen or shorten if needed. Sizes 8, 11, 14, 20, 24, and 32 pounds included in this pattern.

Infant Tuxedo Jacket
Special Occasion Dressing. This little Tuxedo Jacket was designed to coordinate with the Infant Wardrobe I pattern. It is clean-lined in satin to make the finishing easy, neat and tidy. You could make it in white for a Christening or Naming ceremony or in a colour to coordinate with a wedding party or family tartan. Eliminate the tails and end it at the waist in the back and it is quite similar to the traditional jacket worn with a dress kilt. Size range to match the Infant Wardrobe I pattern: 8, 11, 14, 20, 24 and 32 pounds all included in this pattern.

Baby's Breath
A Baby's Seamless Bishop Nightie. Once upon a time newborn babies came home from the hospital in a cozy, soft, tiny, smocked flannel nightgown or bunting. This pattern is designed to carry on this tradition. It is seamless in the neckline area making the pleating super easy but has a unique set in sleeve. It comes in sizes 5, 7, 9, and 11 lbs. and was designed to be made in soft flannel or 100% cotton knit. To reduce bulk, it is suggested that the neckline be bound in soft satin fabric. Construction is completed before you start smocking. Since it has no neckline shaping, it can be worn buttoned or domed up the front or back depending on your preference. The bunting bottom has been offered as an option. Dress it up or keep it plain. Three design plates are included along with tips and additional ideas at the back of the pattern. It is a joy to make for your new bundle of joy.
