*NOTE: as you can imagine, a premature baby is a very precious little bundle of joy often in need of extra special attention & care. For this reason, photos have been taken on a doll with measurements matching those of a premmie.

    Please note: (1) The estimates below do not include directional fabrics. I recommend you cut out the pattern & lay the pieces down on a flat surface to help estimate fabric needs for directional fabric. (2) If you are sewing with rayon, remember to allow for shrinkage & buy a little extra.  (3) Also it’s wise to pre-wash your fabrics, in particular rayon.
