I have been in hospital on a few occasions and the hospital gowns are horrible. So here is my attempt at making a cotton hospital gown which is much nicer and more comfortable to wear. It is always fun to get my sewing machine out!
I have made a couple of these for friends who were pregnant. These gowns have extra fabric on the back panels so they can go right around their bump althought you can cut smaller panels to make a gown for a non-pregnancy related hospital visit.
These make great baby shower gifts. It is always nice to get something for the mum-to-be as they seem to get swamped with things for the baby. It is a way to show that you have been thinking about them as well as the baby.

I saw the idea here and I worked out how to make my own version. Do check out the link as the pictures are so cute and the photos are far better! Plus, the person in the gown is actually pregnant and has a bump so you get a good idea of how it should look. Plus, there are photos of a really adorable newborn!
