This little Sleep Sacque is the new way to dress Baby for bed - your answer to no-blanket baby sleepwear. Paired with a T-shirt, it is a great replacement for a baby nightie, ensuring warmth without blankets which can be kicked off in the night. Make it from soft cotton fabrics, flannel or knits depending on the season and climate. The side zipper makes diaper changing easy - even with a squirming baby in the dead of night! The pattern is sized by weight and chest measure rather than age for more accurate fit. Birth weights vary so greatly these days that age-sizing becomes meaningless. The pattern is also easily shortened or lengthened or width increased for traditional smocking. Make one but be prepared for requests for more!
