How I do the lap shoulder on a Baby Gown :D

Here is a not so short visual picture tutorial of how I do the necklines mainly for the lap over the shoulder Baby gowns.  This is a modified Kwik Sew 3090 pattern.  This particular one is the X-small/Newborn size and I left off the hand covers and I used ribbing for the neckline which I will show you.

First cut your pieces out.   Here are mine all prepped for sewing. LABEL either (or both) the front/back pieces so you dont have to keep looking at the length to be reminded which is which.

Sew/Serge on the Ribbing to each neckline and sleeve.. stretch the RIBBING only and not the shirt with it.  And stretch only slightly.  I use one 17″ piece for ONE neckline and then one SLEEVE cuff.

IF you have any questions, feel free to post. 😀

    Did you do the same thing with the sleeve cuffs? It is so cute I am making one for my soon to be baby! Also I don’t quite get what you basted, what pieces I mean, I’m a fairly new sewer maybe that’s why.

    One more thing where did you get the sleeve you use? I like your version better but don’t know where you got it. Thanks!

    Fantabulous! I was going to make my son some lap tees the other day, but I chickened out and just made regular tees and matching shorts (from some reconned adult tees). Now I think I will have to go ahead and try some. Thanks for the tute!

    How much elastic did you put in the bottom of the gown?

  13. Stacy T Says:

    Joy~ I believe it is approximately 15″ 🙂 Stacy

  14. Joy Lucio Says:

    Thank you! I found my pattern and it all worked out. The newborn size was about 17″ in the pattern I had but I appreciate your prompt answer.

    I just bought this pattern and was looking to do ribbing. And found your post. =O)) Do you TRIM the neckline back a little from the pattern because you’re doing ribbing instead of just turning under and hemming? Thanks!!
