Guild members, Vicki Childers and Gail Kleimnan, brought this wee little project idea to the Outreach Committee. The UNC Hospital NICU needs smocks for neonatal babies. Since clothing for the smallest ones are virtually nonexistent, we hope our members will make micro and tiny smocks. The pattern comes in 4 sizes…micro (1-3 lbs), tiny (3-5 lbs), preemie (5-8 lbs) and newborn (8-11lbs). The smocks require minimal fabric and are quick to make. We will have samples at the Outreach table and a limited number of paper patterns.
NOTE: Pattern piece C is flipped backwards on this file, they are working on updating it ASAP as well as updating some of the directions from when it was originally designed 8 years ago. So either cut 2 mirror image for piece B or flip the pattern piece C over before tracing/cutting.
PRINTING: If you have trouble printing the correct size please check out this blog post to make sure you are using the correct settings www.eymm.com/2013/08/27/printing-pdf-patterns-in-windows-8/
FABRICS: Use 100% Cotton Flannel or 100% Cotton Knit. You can use Cotton/Lycra Knits if they are soft. Holiday or seasonal fabrics are great choices too. You do NOT want to use Quilting Cotton as it takes multiple washes before it softens and it can irritate skin.
