Once upon a time newborn babies came home from the hospital in a cozy, soft, tiny smocked flannel nightgown or bunting. This pattern is designed to carry on this tradition. It is seamless in the neckline area, making the pleating super easy, but has a unique set-in sleeve. Construction is completed before you start smocking. It can be buttoned or domed up the front or back depending on your preference. The bunting bottom has been offered as an option. Dress it up or keep it plain. Three design plates are included along with tips and additional ideas. It is a joy to make for your new bundle of joy!
