Thanks, Jordan! Sewing these little things has been great fun and cheaper than therapy, as they say. My niece is expecting a daughter in October, so I can just keep on sewing baby things to my heart's content. I have started a quilt for her and may make a tiny newborn size dress like the one with the embroidered skirt, but with long sleeves for winter.

Has anyone ever bought a pattern from McCall's Simplicity, etc on-line?
It seems that grandson has a very creative mind. I remember making little zippered jackets for my kids many years ago, but no longer have the pattern. I have not bought directly from the online pattern sites. I'm sure they'd be a reliable source, but I don't know how fast they would be sending them. If you have Joann's near you, they may be doing curbside pickup, and other stores may also be an option for that. I have been been very happy with online purchases from Etsy, where a lot of sellers offer instantly downloadable patterns that you then print for yourself from pdf's. It takes some doing, and some are better than others, but overall, I have had good experiences. You just have to understand your printer settings and get familiar with layers in Acrobat, which is very nifty for the patterns that use that. It lets you print only the size you need. Many of the patterns have multiple sizes, which is great if you're going to make them for both boys. Hope you find what you're looking for.
