Every baby needs a cute, comfortable layette set. These pieces work together to create a darling wardrobe for little ones up to 24 months. The bodysuit and shirt can be made with short or long sleeves and include a snap placket and pleats at the front and back. The bodysuit has elasticized leg openings and a snap placket for easy changes. The elasticized pull-on pants have a roomy fit and are quick to sew. And the reversible jacket features raglan sleeves and a snap closure.
Each of our patterns calls on a unique set of sewing skills. Haven't ever done one of these things before? Don't worry. We'll walk you through it, step by step.
After successfully sewing this pattern, you will have developed the following skills: bias binding, darts, partial placket, pleats, curved seams.
Light- to medium-weight woven fabrics like quilting cotton, voile, lawn, shirting, poplin, broadcloth, and linen. You can also use knits for the main fabrics, but we recommend lightweight woven fabrics for the bodysuit placket and bias binding and for the jacket bias binding.
