The One That is Just Right
I finally figured out that if I go down a couple of needle sizes on this lacy little top down raglan pattern, I could get the size and drape I was looking for. My first attempt was all loosey-goosey and large enough for a 6 month old. No 6 month old baby would stand for wearing something so fussy, so it was critical that I get the newborn sizing just right. The whole idea behind the layette sweater is that it gives baby shower attendees something sweet to coo over-not neccesarily something that will be useful down the road. First time mother's have no idea what a real baby would do to something like this. I'm not telling them. They'll find out soon enough.
