Peek A Boo Patterns: Lullaby Line Sleep Gown

I am at that stage of life where everyone I know seems to be having babies! In fact my sister and three of my sister in laws are all pregnant right now. If you’re like me, cute little babies inspire you to sew cute little things! I’ve made blankets, leggings, shirts, hats, anything you can think of. But my favorite gift to take to baby showers is the Lullaby Line Sleep Gown by Peek A Boo Patterns. (Affiliate Link)

I can’t believe how much my baby has grown. This was taken over a year ago!

I’ve loved sleep gowns for all my babies, especially for middle of the night diaper changes. Who is awake enough to deal with a zillion little snaps at 2:00 AM? Not Me! I used to buy the sleep gowns to give as gifts until I found this pattern. Now I can create one of a kind gowns for all my friends’ babies. And I do not discriminate based on gender. Gowns are for boys too! My friend had me monogram one for her sweet little boy, and it is one of my all time favorite gowns that I’ve sewn!

I love this pattern for so many reasons. The lap neck is so easy for dressing baby. Especially if you have a kid with a giant noggin! Also, the little hand mitts are a must. You can keep baby’s hands warm and prevent them from scratching their little faces. I think the pattern says the mitts are optional, but they’re not! Trust me, just add the mittens. The pattern comes in sizes Premie, Newborn, 3 months, and 6 months.

One mitten on, one mitten off

The next time you’re debating what to take to a baby shower, let me make it easy for you. Make a sleep gown!

    I just made my first gown this week! Can I ask a seamstress question? How do you prefer to attach the cuffs and mittens portion? I used my 4-thread on my serger but wonder if it’s too big a seam? Do you use a long straight stitch? I would love to do more of these for gifts 🙂

      I’ve done the cuffs a couple different ways. I tend to use my serger most of the time. It does make the seam a bit bulkier but I don’t think it’s a problem. Sometimes I do the biding method in the instructions and sometimes I do more of a traditional cuff band, just depending on what I’m in the mood for. These are seriously the best gifts! I really should have been taking pictures of all the ones I’ve made because I’ve done so many of them!
