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.
