I can't help but say "Awww..." every time I see this little sleeper. It's actually a muslin, before I set out to make my final version for the coming home outfit for my little guy. I had very a very specific design in mind when I set out to find a pattern. I wanted it to have a zipper. And it was a bit of a challenge to find one.
I found KS 2246 on Etsy for $3 & snatched it up! The front & back of the pattern are one piece, cut on the fold. It was the most bizarre pattern piece I had ever seen, and I really struggled to figure out what would go where. I did have to rip a couple seams along the way but all in all it turned out pretty cute!
I got the fabric from Joann's clearance section--it's really thin, but it served its purpose. For the final version, I'll use this fabric from Spoonflower.

This is size Small (0-3) but as I suspect, it's a bit big. The back of the pattern says it'll fit 24 inches long & 13 lbs. And it looks comparable to the 3-6 month RTW sleepers I have. Needless to say, my newborn will be swimming in it...but I'd rather it be too big than too small. Shawn's coming home outfit was too small & it almost broke my heart. :)
