The Reverie sleep sack is a simple, easy-to-sew design that features an Empire-waist front and pretty, gathered ‘skirt’. A side zipper and shoulder openings make slipping a sleepy little one in a snap. You can rest easy (and we all know how precious sleep is) knowing that sleep sacks are safer for little ones than loose blankets and won’t get kicked-off on chilly nights. Plus they help to keep little feet from trying to climb out of cribs!
This pattern is rated EASY/BEGINNER, and comes with three sizes, Small (3-6 months), Medium (9-18 months), and Large (18-36 months). You can use a variety of materials from printed craft cottons to mid-weight knits and can line with fabrics like flannel or t-shirt jersey. You will need an adjustable zipper foot but no other special equipment. When selecting a size, remember to consider your baby should have plenty of room to move their feet – you may want to allow 6″ at the bottom (instructions on lengthening and shortening are included). As with all the patterns, there are instructions on adjusting the size and tips on working with PDF patterns. To view the instructions and yardage requirements, click here to download.
