Here are our most frequently used fonts and thread colors.  More may be available if you have something specific in mind!  Questions about how to arrange letters for monogramming?  Check out this blog post!  

Here are the finished garment measurements for each style of outfit.  Order a garment that is a little bit bigger than your child’s measurements (for waist, chest).   You want a little room for movement.  One way to measure is to measure your favorite-fitting outfit and order one close to it, or a size up.

Not sure what size to get?  Feel free to ask for guidance!  

We have a guide for sizing for buying gifts here:  https://sodacitysewing.com/2019/07/29/what-size-baby-clothes-to-get-for-a-gift/ 

Many children wear a size larger than their age (so a 9 month old wears 12 month (AKA 9-12 Month) clothes).  That’s a rule of thumb however- as we know some 9 month babies wearing 6 month and some who wear 2T clothing!  Generally you can purchase these outfits in the same size they are wearing now in a similar outfit from most companies.  But double check the measurements given here to be on the safe side, especially for monogrammed garments!
