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. 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 included. It is a joy to make for your new bundle of joy.
