Pattern Description:

I drafted this pattern 7 years ago after my cousin's little boy Benjamin was born months early weighing in at 2lbs 8oz I searched everywhere for preemie cloths to fit! Babies less than 3lbs are considered 'micro-preemie' & you can actually find some stuff on the internet to buy made, but not many patterns.

So after looking at different things I drafted up a pattern for a NICU friendly preemie smock that fits a good range of sizes. When babies are in the NICU it really helps the parents to see their little ones wearing some sort of clothing. BUT with all the monitors & wires many clothes are difficult to get on, or they get in the way of the wires or the nurses... which is what makes these so great! 7 years later I have revamped it to include not just 1 but 4 different sizes!!!

I do not want to sell this pattern because I did not create it so people could make them to sell, or I could profit off of it, but instead to encourage people to help others out. For that reason this pattern is FREE FOR PERSONAL & CHARITY USE ONLY. This pattern, the pieces along with the instructions & photos, are copyrighted & may not be sold or reproduced without the written consent from the owner of Everything Your Mama Made & More! Feel free to link people back to the blog where they can access it free www.everythingyourmamamade.com or to the craftsy listing.

Before sewing items to donate to the hospital (this or others) PLEASE contact them first & ask what they need... you may need to bring this in to show them before they can give you an answer. Some hospitals are very strict about what they can take. If you would like to help but don't have a local hospital in need Gracie's Gowns always has families in need! You can send them there & they will distribute them to NICU's & families who would love them.

If you have, any questions feel free to send me a quick email or leave a comment
Happy Sewing!
