View Full Version : need a one-piece pattern for baby:

I'm looking for a one-piece union suit/pajama pattern for a baby. here's the catch: I'm looking for something that is suitable for flannel. All the patterns I've seen from Kwik-Sew, Simplicity, Butterick, etc are all for STRETCH KNITS ONLY. Any ideas?

thank you!

Have you seen this one by Kwik Sew? It is number 2360 and can be used with fleece, which I know is a knit, but I believe you could use flannel as well, as long as you allowed for enough room without the stretch.

That's a kind of garment that I think really calls for a knit. I've never seen wovens used for it in ready-to-wear, either; when you combine the shape of a one-piece with the wiggliness of a baby, I think you have to have stretch to make it work.

On the other hand, working with knits really isn't as bad as it seems -- I discovered it worked fine on my machine.
