Baby Layla shows off her southern style on National Seersucker Day with a sweet, pink seersucker bow.

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – A baby girl was welcomed into the world at Baton Rouge General (BRG) an hour into National Seersucker Day.

In a news release, BRG reports that mother and Baby Layla are doing well. Baby Layla was born at 1:14 a.m., weighing at eight pounds, two ounces.

This year, Senator Bill Cassidy announced Thursday, June 17 as National Seersucker Day.

The southern style was popular in the early 1900s as a solution to the sweltering summer weather. Instead of wearing thick fabrics, people opted for a lighter cotton-based material — what we now recognize as seersucker.
