From Simple Knits for Cherished Babies:

Another classic straight from the family photograph album, this little ribbon edged vest is a brilliant gift for a new born baby.  Knit in in classic white or in soft blue, taupe or grey in merino or botany wool for extra winter warmth.  Slot fine silk ribbon through the eyelets in the neck band, tied in a bow at the centre to create the finishing detail.  The shoulder seams are grafted together for a smooth finish ensuring that the baby’s soft skin is not irritated.
