Infant Baby Gown


This was a shower gift I made for a friend from church. She's due in May and having a little girl.
The pattern is a Kwik Sew 3090. If using binding I recommend trimming the seam allowances by 1/4 to 3/8 of inch first.

I'm in love with my Babylock Coverstitcher. in. love. I am no binding expert, believe me. I'm not even all that experienced with knits, but just look at what this machine can do!!!!! It makes me feel like a professional! Thank you little Babylocky - I love you for it and must give credit where credit is due.




Shirring was accomplished by putting elastic thread in my bobbin and using the shirring foot made the process even easier!

This is just as cute as it can be! There is soooo much on my Babylock Serger that I haven't even tried yet and you just inspired me!!! I LOVE the shirring at the bottom - what a GREAT idea! Thanks for sharing this!
