I made a newborn gown and then a newborn sweatshirt!
I used the same pattern, just shortened it for the sweatshirt. I used some fabric I bought at Goodwill... it was about five yards for $2.50. So, these things cost almost nothing to make!
I think the newborn gown turned out really cute. So, I'm going to make a few more for some friends of mine who are pregnant.
