Once upon a time newborn babies came home from the hospital in a cozy, soft, tiny, smocked 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.
Since it has no neckline shaping, it can be worn buttoned up the front or back depending on your preference. A bunting bottom is offered as an option.
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.
Construction is completed before you start smocking.
Sizes 5, 7, 9, and 11 lbs.
I ship within 1-2 business days using USPS 1st class shipping whenever possible.
When I find that the shipping charged was higher than necessary I will refund the overage.
Shipping for Pleater Needles US customers
Needles are shipped in a heavy cardboard envelope to prevent bending. While this would seem to increase the shipping cost actually USPS charges the same rate for 1, 2 and 3 oz. 1 oz is the smallest weight I can use.
Based on this I have set a flat shipping rate of $3.00 for up to 80 pleater needles shipped in 1 package within the United States.
