But I love baby nighties.
I don't get on with wonder suits. Too many poppers and they always seem too hot or not warm enough.
I remember getting one of the babies up to find the legs of the wonder suit wrapped around their belly and knotted.
Daddy had done a night nappy and it all had been a bit too much to deal with.
I like nighties, cardies and something on their feet.
I favour Bonds nighties but they only go up to size 00.
I don't know if you can still buy them, Trixie is wearing the same half dozen I bought for Hugo.
I have many vintage baby patterns that would work but I have always wondered about the Hopscotch dress by Oliver+S.
I asked the question in the excellent O+S forum and received a positive response.
So I decided to have a go!
I made the smallest size 6-12 months, with no mods.
The fabric is some scraps of wool/modal from my Late Lunch tunic.
I did add a skerrick of cotton lace to the neck band and a wee gingham bow.
The lace is pre-gathered with elastic thread so it is perfect for a knit garment.
I sewed it to the neckband with a wide zigzag.
And how did it fit?
It fit adorably.
How cute is this baby?
I think we can call this a success.
