This pale blue baby knicker, made by pattern #103, is made from Imperial Batiste. Now that I am once again sewing for a real live baby, Imperial Batiste is my all time favorite fabric! Not only is it soft, but being 65% cotton and 35% polyester, it washes well and needs very little ironing. I do not recommend it for an heirloom garment since we don't know what polyester will look like in 50 years, but since I plan on this outfit being worn and passed around to other babies, it was perfect for the project.
Wouldn't this be cute with a little pink sweater for Spring?
