Being in the hospital is a scary thing for children. Being able to wear a hospital gown with a favorite character, color or pattern on it helps to ease the fear! Bring a smile to the face of a young child by sewing a one-of-a-kind hospital gown. You know they will love it! Just imagine all the extra attention that will come their way when they wear a special hospital gown. Children having minor surgeries in outpatient settings love having a special gown to wear on the big day!
The gown design features snaps on the sleeves for the convenience of IV lines. Because the gown ties on the side, it keeps private areas concealed. This also helps ease some of the anxiety of being in the hospital. Coordinate colorful bias tape to add trim and tie the gown closed.
The finished hospital gown measures 27 inches from shoulder to hem and 19.5 inches from side to side. You can easily add additional length, if necessary. Fits children size 3-8.
Requires 2.5 yards of fabric.
Includes optional pocket.
I purchased this pattern for my mother to sew a hospital gown for my daughter. My mom (who has years of sewing experience) had difficulty following the instructions on the pattern and ending up using it as a rough guide while making her own thing... so this might not be the best choice for someone new to sewing. Glad I didn't attempt it myself. In the end it turned out beautiful and all the nurses were impressed.
