I've got a handful of friends who are expecting babies in the next few months and I've decided that this kimono top is going to be my go-to shower gift. I made one for little r before she was born and it is just the right combination of precious & practical. I also like that it's easy to mix and match fabrics to make them pretty gender neutral, as a lot of my friends either aren't finding out the sex, or keeping it a secret.
The pattern is an old one from Martha Stewart Kids, but you can still find it online. I am thinking of making some changes for the next round though, so stay tuned.
