Children’s Corner “Bunny Knit Nightie”
The Bunny Knit Nightie is an easy-to-make baby layette that includes a nightgown accented with a shell edge, bib, blanket, and burp cloth. The gown is designed for knit fabric, has overlapping front and back shoulders for ease in dressing baby, and can be made as a sacqué. The bunny appliqué template and instructions are included. This classic layette makes for a well-loved baby gift that sews up quickly. This pattern is printed on paper with the pieces stacked/nested. The small pieces are quick and easy to trace.
Suggested Fabrics: For the gown, use light to medium-weight stretch jersey knit with less than 35% stretch. The gown pattern is not suitable for woven fabrics. For the bunny, bib, blanket and burp cloth, use knit or woven fabrics like broadcloth or lawn. We LOVE using Sea Island knit when making this layette set. We stock this gorgeous fabric in white, pink and blue and is occasionally available in a sweet print.
APPLIQUÉ: Lightweight fusible web; tear away stabilizer; fabric and embellishment for appliqué
GOWN: Elastic (1/4”) for optional sacqué – 1/2 yard
