Going home outfit

Miss M was born at 36 weeks and 3 days...which means that this little guy could come at any time since today is the third day of week 36.  With that in mind, I whipped up this preemie sized Going Home Outfit.  I used Ottobre 6/2007 (which I just got as a back issue four days ago), pattern #3 "Overall for a premature baby" in size 45 cm based on the length my daughter was at birth.

It was my first time using rib knit binding and my first time to use a double needle.  It's not perfect, and sadly the wonkiest parts are front and center, but it's not too noticeable and on a cute newborn, I doubt even the most particular seamstress would notice!

The onesie is a preemie sized one I got at a thrift store for a few cents.  It was kind of coincidence that it goes so well.

I finished up the last 6 diapers I needed to complete my newborn stash of 24 and 3 covers, so I think I'm all ready for the little guy!  As long as he's healthy, he's welcome to come any time now! :-)
