A layette is a collection of clothing for a newborn child. The term "layette set" is commonly used in the United States to refer to gift sets of baby clothes.   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Layette
 
Traditionally, women would hand-sew their baby's clothes during their pregnancy.
Basic layette items include:
a going-home-from-the-hospital outfit
legless sleepwear (sleeping gowns / kimonos / sleeping bags / newborn sacques / blanket sleepers) or footed sleepers
onesies (short-sleeved, legless bodysuits) / all-in-ones / rompers / coveralls
undershirts / T-shirts
receiving blankets
swaddling blankets
hooded towels
baby washcloths
socks / booties
hats / beanies / sweaters / bunting (depending on the climate)
burp cloths (cloth diapers are often recommended)

On March 27, 2007, based on the communication strengths of the internet, an estimated 30,000 patriotic Americans from around the nation, came through an east coast snow and ice storm to stand together at the War Memorials for World War II, the Korea War and the Vietnam War.   These proud American flag-wavers stood, and still stand together in full support of America's men and women in military uniforms around the world.
