What a stunning gift set this will make for the new mommy at her baby shower. She will be impressed with receiving a gift like this. I have not seen a little cardigan like this with the self ties for babies before. So I appreciate the originality of the design. And the matching hat is too cute! It looks like it came from a boutique.
