One of my favorite baby shower gifts to make and give are baby swimsuits. Although I have been known to make a little Speedo for a boy or two, I generally just stick with baby girl suits. Next weekend I'm going to a baby shower for a couple who recently has adopted a baby girl. Can't wait to give her these.
And yes, this is how teeny it is, compared to my hand.
3-6 months size
Aren't those ruffles just the cutest?!
Another little style I wanted to try was a chevron suit. I had some scrap swimsuit fabric that really wasn't big enough for much else and so I used my standard toddler tank swimsuit pattern (Kwik Sew 2512--also discontinued) and made a little 1T swimsuit for her to wear next summer.
