kimono bodysuit : 040

Contrast trim will define this kimono bodysuit and make baby stand out among all the others in the nursery. With the wrap-style front, changing is made easy for all involved... included good ol' dad (or granddad, for that matter).  Like our kimono shirt, this pattern includes instructions for optional hand mitts, making for a great take-home option.

Size range: Preemie - 3T

Skill level: Intermediate


  • Knit fabric for bodysuit, we suggest a soft cotton jersey. AMOUNT NEEDED- 0.75 yards for all sizes.
  • Knit fabric for binding, a stretchy jersey knit works for this as well as a lightweight rib knit. AMOUNT NEEDED- 0.25 yards for all sizes.
  • 7 sets of snaps and snap fastener. We suggest size 14 (aka: 5/16" or 8mm)


  • Sewing machine
  • Overlock machine / Serger – If you don't own one, you can use a small zig-zag stitch in place of the serged seam.
