This gorgeous matinee set will fit premature babies or 15-17" reborn dolls. It is to knit in 4ply (fingering) yarn on larger than normal needles to give it a light and frothy look.
The matinee coat has a lacy skirt. The set-in sleeves have lace edgings and tie at the wrists with satin ribbon.
There is also a matching lacy bonnet and traditional lace-topped bootees.
This would make the perfect gift for an early baby but would look equally heavenly on your prem size reborn.

I have been knitting since I was 5 years old (and that's a very long time now!) Since my own children (and my grandchildren) are all grown up, it's lovely to be able to knit items that are pretty as well as practical and to use dainty rosebuds, pretty pearls and lashings of lace and ribbons. All of my patterns can be used for real babies too. I hope my designs bring you as much pleasure as they have brought me x
