Lullaby Line Knotted Gown – a pattern test

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!

So one more time, here is the pattern link, and here’s one more cute baby picture because I know at least I can’t get enough of that sweet face.

  1. Love this! I purchased the pattern and was just wondering what fabric you used for the appliqué raccoon? Did you use felt or cotton or knit?

    • Hi, You could use any of those. I used knit in this one because I wanted to use the same fabric as the sleeves for the tail, but normally I use quilting cotton since it is less bulky and has more options. I will be doing a tutorial for these on the Peek-a-Boo Pattern’s blog next week.
