I made this outfit for my nieces baby shower tonight.
How do you make clothes that fit a newborn. The last 3 I made all look to big. The 1 I gave in May the baby still can't wear & she is 12 weeks old. It was a sunsuit & the season is almost over! I cut this 1 down a little but it still looks to big. Maybe I will go with preemie patterns.
I still have too put together a book yo go with it.
My husbands family came up with this idea the for last shower. Instead of a card you sign a book for the baby to keeps as a start to their library. The only problem I see with this is when the child outgrows the book it would be hard for me to part with if it is signed.
Happiness is having time to sew!!

Barb, that's a really cute outfit! I've had the same problem with fitting though-I wish the pattern companies were a little more on target for newborns! I made my first granddaughter a dress that she was barely able to wear a couple months when she was born and one from another pattern-same size, different company-that she couldn't wear until she was a year old! I dont' know what the answer is except keep trying to find something that fits right and then hang onto that pattern!!
