Infant and Preemie Layette
Premie to Large
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Good basic pattern for baby clothes with lots of options.
I made the onesie (View H), long sleeve shirt (View C), romper (View B), and booties (View L)
Cotton knits, some 100% cotton, some a cotton/lycra blend.
These went together really easily. I used FOE to finish the necklines, cuffs and leg openings and I think it worked really well. All the seams were done on my serger so they went together fast. I used snap tape for the snaps at the bottom on the onesies. I like this style for the shoulders as I think it's easier to put on and less fuss than dealing with snaps at the shoulders.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn't make any changes for the onesies and shirt. The romper was almost the same but I added some cuffs at the ankle. The booties I made a bit different. The bottoms are the same but at the top instead of sewing the pieces together I lined them with contrasting fabric and left them separate at the front to create a tongue. I then added velcro so that the sides could be wrapped around and tightened.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'll likely make more of these in larger sizes as my niece grows and keep the pattern around for other babies in the family.
Great pattern for basic baby wardrobe items.
