I felt pretty good when finding out about an ex I'm still great friends with was due to give birth late September (or so I thought. She actually gave birth on the 3rd). I looked closely at the pattern: Kids clothes in the '50s were pretty impractical, and really, unless you're going to a traditional church service to baptise your newborn, I wouldn't.
So gritted my teeth and went to the local sewing shop. $17.50 later I had Butterick B5585.
|Mine also has a warning sticker|
It also says "very easy", which it was. Here are the results:
|Have to make the cute bonnet to go with it|
|Horrible t-shirt fabric. Pain to place|
|Dress. The embroidery is iron-on|
I'd recommend this pattern if you want to whip up some clothes for a newborn, but if you can get it secondhand, even better!
Made both on my new Pfaff 360.
