I did not use these type of gowns very much when my kids were babies but I think they are making a come back because they are used today. They look very comfrotable on the feet. I am going to give this a try but I think I may try a zipper because I do not like to make plackets.

A baby gown, rather than a onsie is often the best garment for newborns. Not so many snaps to line up! The tutorial that accompanies the article is clear enough however the construction steps, particularly in the placket and neckline area, may be a slight challenge for some.
