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.
