There is a pattern I am thinking of ordering but it's a pattern for knits only.

This is the pattern.It's McCalls 4280


I want to make the top piece C and the pants.  The top is the main item that the baby is wearing in the pict but shorter for a top instead of a gown.   But I have another pattern I could also use the pants.  But instead of knit I want to use flannel.  

I thought it might work because the top has ties to close on the front/side, but I wanted to get some "expert" opinions.   It doesn't go over the head and it's fairly loose fitting.  I've sewed clothing items before but they were patterns for broadcloth and I used broadcloth (cotton) or flannel to sew them.

I make soap and other "cosmetics" as defined by the FDA and in my spare time I sew.... Sewing is therapy for me in dealing with life stresses and my chronic pain.  When I hurt and can't sew, I plan what I want to sew.  I also have a great husband, three kids and three fur kids.....

Sure, why not? If you plan on making them sleeping clothes, you might make the arms just a little roomier to make up for the lack of stretch, but that's pretty much it.

Thanks, I thought it might be okay given the style of the top, but thought I would get someone elses opinion.  I'm going to re-draft the neckline/front anyways so I could tweak the sides a tish to make sure there will be enough moving room in the garment.

It should work, although if you look you might find a similar pattern for woven fabric as I know I had one a few years ago when my goddaughter was born.
