Introduction: Children's Hospital Gown

This gown is so simple to make, and the possibilities are unlimited: camouflage, princess, bling, sports, trains, Elmo, Christmas, Easter, etc. A child in the hospital is an awful thing, so anything you can do to make them feel better is worth doing.

Step 1:

Begin by cutting out the fabric pieces. Use the shape of a basic V-neck, with extra hem length. The picture shown is for a toddler-sized gown and can be enlarged as needed. You should cut out one front piece, two back pieces that mirror each other, and one front pocket.

Step 2: Serge

Serge the edges if possible.

Step 3: Button Hole on Chest

Sew a buttonhole on the left front chest. (This buttonhole will be covered by the front pocket, and will allow hidden access for a heart monitor.)

Step 4:

Attach front and back pieces together by sewing the side-seams to each other. Begin at the bottom edge of sleeve and end at the hem. Repeat on other side.

Step 5:

Sew the front and back shoulders together. Begin at the edge of the sleeve and sew to the neckline. Repeat on other side.

Step 6:

Put a finished edge on the front and back neck-line. I used a white ribbon as trim. An alternative would be to simply turn under the edge and sew it.

Step 7:

Put a finished edge on the hem line and the sleeves.

Step 8:

Sew a tie onto each corner of the center back neckline

Step 9:

Locate matching points on the edges of back pieces, about midway down the back, and Sew a tie onto each side.

Step 10:

Sew on front pocket over the buttonhole.

Step 11: Strike a Pose

Finished Product!!

I changed the pocket on the one I made. I just edged the opening in biase-tape and put the pocket a little below the opening. I sewed 4 pieces of soft vel-cro on the gown over the opening, on each side of it and under the pocket. I then put matching vel-cro mates on cartoon appliques. My camera grew legs so I can not take a picture right now. Thank you for the idea now I am going to try to make some that look like Halloween dress-ups to donate to our local peds unit we use.
