I had assumed that babies this small were impossible to dress so I didn’t attempt to make anything for Innocent. Afterward, I was hurt that I had to lay him in his grave “undressed”. I’ve thought about it since and looked at his pictures many times. I decided that I would at least make the attempt to dress this baby.
The flannel gown opens in back and the sleeves are short and wide enough so that I shouldn’t damage her arms trying to get them in. The bonnet is fairly simple. I was afraid to try to make a stocking-type cap because the size would have to really be right and I didn’t want to damage her head.
I’ll take these to the hospital and dress her after she’s born. Everything is white, like a baptismal gown, so if this is a boy it will be fine.
I took the pictures on some of the flannel I’m going to use to make a little blanket.
It really helps to be able to do something for my baby.
