Baby Sailor - English

40,00 DKK

Baby Sailor is knit from the top and down in one piece. A welt and drawstring around the waist create the illusion of a tee and shorts, where the tee has a collar and is shaped with raglan borders, and the shorts have an opening at the crotch for easy changing. The anchor is embroidered onto the finished tee using duplicate stitching. Short row shaping is used on the back of the onesie to create space for the baby’s backside.
