I tested this baby gown and in short, it’s a keeper. It’s the Lullaby Line Knotted Gown* from Peek-a-boo pattern shop and it’s on sale for release day.
I debated whether to sign up for the test when it came out. I had several good reasons not to test it. Like:
- I just had a baby
- I already have the other baby gown pattern and it is great!
- I don’t test much anymore for lack of time
- Three kids three and under
But I just loved the raglan sleeves, and snap placket and knotted bottom. It can be banded too, but I really like the knot for boys. So I gave in and signed up to test and I’m so glad I got picked! The construction comes together really nicely and it has a lot of unique features. It is completely different from the other Lullaby Line Gown.
The raglan design works great for showcasing panels, and I have a thing for appliquéing animal faces so get ready to see a lot more of these (tutorial coming soon!)
The fold-over mitt cuffs are constructed differently than they are in the other lullaby gown as well. With all the different techniques in both patterns I am glad to have them both. This gown is fitted in the chest and loosens near the hips to allow movement which is important for a baby’s physical development.
We do gowns a lot in the newborn days because they make for easy diaper changes. Plus these are great baby gifts, especially when paired with the Lullaby Line Hat. I actually made this set for my nephew that is coming soon. I was tempted to keep it because my son looks adorable in it. However, I also love gifting things that I make, especially when they have little animal faces on them!
