The bodysuit and shirt can be made with short or long sleeves and include a snap placket and pleats at the front and back. The bodysuit has elasticized leg openings and a snap placket for easy changes. The elasticized pull-on pants have a roomy fit and are quick to sew. And the reversible jacket features raglan sleeves and a snap closure.

    Skills Used

    Each of our patterns calls on a unique set of sewing skills. Haven't ever done one of these things before? Don't worry. We'll walk you through it, step by step.

    Light- to medium-weight woven fabrics like quilting cotton, voile, lawn, shirting, poplin, broadcloth, and linen. You can also use knits for the main fabrics, but we recommend lightweight woven fabrics for the bodysuit placket and bias binding and for the jacket bias binding.

    I don't normally sew baby's clothes but a friends baby is on the way and I couldn't pass this pattern up! I have only made the onesie so far, it was really easy to follow and turned out great! I will definitely be making more :)

    I had been looking for an infant jacket pattern with raglan sleeves and was so happy to find this one! So far I've made the jacket and plan to make matching pants. I made the jacket with heavier material than called for - a brushed fabric on the outside and fleece on the inside - and it came out great! No problems at all with heavier fabric. Looking forward to making the pants and trying other patterns in the future.

    Made three onesies for 3-6 months. Had some questions about applying the binding, was so impressed with the immediate response and attention to detail in replying to my question. Felt it was great customer service, and was happy with the results. Went ahead and then made the jacket and pants. All turned out great. Will use the pattern again and again.

    This pattern set is fantastic! I have so far made the bodysuit in two sizes as well as the pants. Both patterns have great sizing and go together perfectly. Simple patterns with great instructions and a few different techniques to keep it interesting and professional looking. All of the pieces have been given as gifts and the new mums are just delighted! I am due myself in a few months and my baby will live in pieces from this layette set 24/7. Recommend to every sewist for the little people in their lives!

    This would have to be one of the best baby patterns anyone could wish for....I found everything easy to follow.....the instructions are detailed and the finished product looks fantastic. I especially love that you can use woven fabrics to make the onesie. Will be making these items many more times.

    Just made the onesie out of grey flannel for my baby boy. It is super cute! Overall I was very impressed by the directions and ease of following this moderately complicated pattern. The one thing that was missing was more detailed instructions for finishing off my interior seams. Not sure how I would have done that without a serger.

    A perfect addition to the O+S family, and yours!

    I cannot say how delighted I was when this pattern was released, being 12 weeks pregnant at the time. There are a lot of knit romper patterns available (very hard to get a professional look with knit) there are a lot of traditional baby rompers available ( lots of smocking, very bloomy) but this is the perfect mix of both. It sews up in a woven, thus enabling great results, but it is not too puffy so it is very suitable for sweet baby girls or boys. The tab front makes dressing wiggly babies a breeze and the trousers easily cover a cloth nappy, no need to size up. I think the blouse could use a extra inch length added, but that is just my personal taste. The jacket is fab, one of those Rock Star projects, when you think 'I made that'? Perfect for gifts, perfect for your baby. Just perfect.

    This is my go-to pattern for all of the babies in my life. I absolutely LOVE the jacket. it is a piece of cake to make and can be made with the binding or without. The pants are perfect and cozy. They are loose enough that they would be comfortable lined with fleece or flannel for warmth. The seems on the pants are really cute and different, as they do not sit on the sides, but rather more toward the front. Instructions are detailed and perfect as always. The onesie and blouse are added pieces to create a lovely layette.

  • Determining Which Printing You Have

    As errata are discovered, they are marked for correction in subsequent printings of the pattern. To determine which printing of an instruction sheet or pattern sheet you have, look at the copyright box which appears on each. Toward the bottom of the box, there is a series of numbers.

    The lowest number you see there indicates which printing you have. For example, if the lowest number in the box on the instruction sheet is "2," you have an instruction sheet from the second printing. Any errors in the instructions mentioned for the first printing have been corrected in your version. If the lowest number in the box on the pattern sheet is "1," you have a copy of the pattern sheet from the first printing.

    Pattern sheets and instructions sheets can be printed separately, so be sure to check the errata notices for pattern pieces against the printing number on the pattern sheet and errata notices for instructions against the printing number on the instruction sheet.

    Errata

    There was a minor error in the first printing of this pattern. On the first page of the instructions, step 1 under Getting Started should begin, "For View A only, cut...."
